UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 26, 2013
J2 GLOBAL COMMUNICATIONS INC., PLAINTIFF,
OPEN TEXT CORPORATION; EASYLINK SERVICES INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Dean D. Pregerson United States District Judge
ORDER VACATING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION TO DISMISS COUNTS THREE AND FOUR OF DEFENDANT'S AMENDED COUNTERCLAIMS. [Docket No. 35 ]
This Court has granted Plaintiff's (j2's) Motion to Stay in this case. A district court may stay proceedings because it "possesses the inherent power to control its docket and promote efficient use of judicial resources." Dependable Highway Exp., Inc. v. Navigators Ins. Co., 498 F.3d 1059, 1066 (9th Cir. 2007). When a motion to stay is granted, a court will often vacate pending motions. Young v. Mandeville, CIV S-01-2360 LKK GG, 2006 WL 2475343, at *1 (E.D. Cal. Aug. 28, 2006) (noting application of this norm). Accordingly, the Court now VACATES Plaintiff's Motion to Dismiss Counts Three and Four of Defendant's Amended Counterclaims. (Docket No. 35.)
IT IS SO ORDERED.
