LG ELECTRONICS, INC. ET AL. DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lucy H. Koh United States District Judge
ORDER REFERRING MATTER FOR RELATED CASE DETERMINATION
United States District Court For the Northern District of California
The above captioned matter asserts infringement of United States Patent No. 6,163,557 ("the '557 Patent"), and was previously pending before the Honorable Henry Coke Morgan, Jr. in 18 the Eastern District of Virginia. On April 12, 2013, Judge Morgan ordered that the above 19 captioned matter be transferred to the Northern District of California, because Plaintiff Bluestone 20 Innovations, LLC also asserts infringements of the '557 Patent in a case currently pending before 21 the Honorable Susan Illston, Bluestone Innovations LLC v. Epistar Corp. et al., 12-CV-0059-SI. 22
Judge Morgan found that the interests of justice in avoiding duplicative efforts and inconsistent 23 results favored consolidation with case 12-CV-0059-SI. See ECF No. 93. 24
Pursuant to Civil Local Rule 3-12(c), the Court hereby refers the above captioned matter to Judge Illston for a determination as to whether it is related to case 12-CV-0059-SI. 26
IT IS SO ORDERED.
