Stay for Reexamination

Stay of infringement action is warranted in view of defendant’s application for reexamination of patent in suit before U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, since USPTO’s determination will be beneficial to efficient resolution of action, in that disputes may be resolved, issues may be simplified, parties may be encouraged to settle, and PTO’s decision will be admissible in district court proceedings and presumed valid.  (Ralph Gonnocci Revocable Living Trust v. Three M Tool & Machine, Inc., 68 USPQ2d 1755, DC EMich, 10/7/03).
