In re HP Laserjet and the question of injunctive relief
On February 14, there was an hour-long fairness hearing before Judge Guilford in the Central District of California, and anyone who practices in federal court in California knows how rare hour-long arguments are. One certainly appreciates the attention paid to the case. The Laserjet settlement was pretty much identical to the Inkjet settlement (with the twist that the lead plaintiff in Laserjet filed an objection accusing his attorneys, Kabateck Brown Kellner, of fraud). The Court gave the opportunity for additional briefing, and Tuesday we provided this brief with a short summary on the question of injunctive relief and answering some of the Court's questions.
