Judge Denies Limelight’s Motion For Summary Judgment In Level 3 Case

During the holidays, on December 29th, the Judge denied Limelight's motion for a summary judgment in their patent suit with Level 3 and stated the case will still go to trial. If you want to get a good overview of the patents in dispute, without too much legal mumbo jumbo, the summary judgment document details what's being argued by both sides.

In other patent suit news, while it was expected that the Judge in the Akamai and Limelight case would issue a ruling before the New Year, no ruling has yet to come out. When it does, I will post it as soon as I get a copy of it.

    Dan, what does a timeline look like for Limelight-Level 3? Trial 90 days away? What do you think the likelihood that they settle?

  • Hi Eric, I will have a post up this week about a potential settlement in the Level 3 and Limelight case. While I have no inside knowledge of one taking place, I think there are a few ways both sides could agree to settle the dispute.
    I don’t have a trial date on the Level 3 case yet, but I think it was expected to go in Q2 of this year.

    The trial began yesterday, January 5, 2009 in the Eastern District Court of Virginia. Jury selection begins today…

  • Henry is right. Trial is starting.
