Iconfind, Inc v. Premature As Google

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


June 3, 2011

ICONFIND, INC.,
PLAINTIFF,
v.
PREMATURE AS GOOGLE, INC.,
DEFENDANT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge

ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR JUDGMENT ON THE PLEADINGS

Defendant moves under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure ("Rule") 12(c) for judgment on the pleadings. Plaintiff opposes this motion arguing, inter alia, that this motion is premature. A Rule 12(c) motion should not be filed until "[a]fter the pleadings are closed . . . ." Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(c). Where, as here, "in addition to an answer, a counterclaim is pleaded, the pleadings are closed only when the plaintiff serves his reply." See Flora v. Home Fed. Sav. & Loan Ass'n, 685 F.2d 209, 211 n.4 (7th Cir. 1982). Plaintiff has not yet replied to Defendant's Second Counterclaim for Declaratory Judgment of Patent Invalidity. Therefore, Defendant's Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings is DENIED as premature.
