APPLERA CORPORATION-APPLIED BIOSYSTEMS GROUP, A DELAWARE CORPORATION, PLAINTIFF,
ILLUMINA, INC., A DELAWARE CORPORATION, SOLEA INC., A DELAWARE CORPORATION, AND STEPHEN C. MACEVICZ, AN INDIVIDUAL, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: William A Lsup United States District Judge
ORDER REQUESTING SUBMISSION RE PROCEEDING IN FRONT OF MAGISTRATE JUDGE
Before ruling on Applera's "motion for clarification," the parties should submit a written statement on their position regarding proceeding in front of a magistrate judge to complete the case by NOVEMBER 14, 2008, AT NOON.
The Court will work with both sides to select a suitable judge. A magistrate judge may be able to try this case much earlier than the undersigned. The Court is about to begin a capital prosecution case that will possibly last six months. A trial in January in the instant case is still on calender, subject to change, but counsel could relieve the Court of a great burden by agreeing to proceed in front of a magistrate judge.
