IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
February 4, 2011
GRANT STREET GROUP, INC., PLAINTIFF,
REALAUCTION.COM, LLC, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Ambrose, Senior District Judge
ORDER ON CLAIMS CONSTRUCTION
Plaintiff charged Defendant with infringement of United States Patent No. 7,523,063 (Athe >063 patent@). Given the highly technical nature of the patents, I appointed a Special Master to oversee the claims construction process. By Order dated April 15, 2010, I appointed Paul A. Beck to serve as Special Master in this litigation. (ECF No. 48). The Special Master conducted a Markman hearing on July 9, 2010. The hearing was continued on November 4, 2010. The Markman proceedings closed on November 4, 2010. On November 24, 2010, the Special Master has issued his Report and Recommendation on Disputed Claim Terms of the '063 Patent ("R&R). (ECF No. 151).
Defendant filed Objections to the R&R. (ECF No. 164). I reviewed the Objections, the Response and the Special Master=s R&R. After careful considerations of the same and for the reasons set forth in the R&R, the Special Master=s R&R (ECF No. ) is hereby adopted in its entirety. Defendant's Objections (ECF No. ) are overruled.
