Jeffrey Gleason of Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP, counsel for A123 Systems, Inc. filed a motion yesterday, June 11, 2009, to reopen the A123 Systems, Inc. v. Hydro-Quebec case:
Plaintiff A123 Systems, Inc. (“A123”) hereby moves the Court to reopen the above-captioned case. As grounds for this motion, A123 states that, on January 30, 2007, this Court dismissed this case without prejudice to either party moving to reopen the case prior to September 1, 2007 (Docket No. 79). On September 6, 2007, the Court granted A123’s Amended Unopposed Motion to Extend Deadline to File Motion to Reopen Case Pending Reexamination of Patents, extending the deadline to file a motion to reopen the case until thirty (30) days after the conclusion of the Reexaminations of US Patent Nos. 5,910,382 (“the ‘382 patent”) and 6,514,640 (“the ‘640 patent”) by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“PTO”). The PTO issued reexamination certificates concluding the reexaminations for the ‘382 patent on April 15, 2008 (attached hereto as Exhibit A) and for the ‘640 patent on May 12, 2009 (attached hereto as Exhibit B).
Accordingly, consistent with the Court’s Orders, A123 respectfully requests that the Court reopen this case without prejudice to either party.
