Tecsec v. IBM: EDVA Grants Motion to Sever and Stay


On Friday, the Court issued its order resolving the motions made by Defendants to sever the claims against each Defendant and stay those cases, pending resolution of the case against IBM.  The Court granted the Defendants' motion and referred the motions regarding a Case Management Order to Magistrate Judge Buchanan.  Accordingly, the case will now proceed only against IBM (and eBay, who did not join the motion to sever but instead filed a motion to dismiss based on Tecsec's alleged failure to identify any allegedly infringing activing in which eBay participated), with the claims against all other Defendants being stayed.
