In the latest update of the ongoing Meta Company patent infringement case, the court has responded to a request from the defendants, and the answer is not good news.
As Next Reality reported earlier this month, John Sines, the CFO of the old Meta Company team (the company's assets have since been sold to a new owner), asked the court to find a new lawyer for 45 days should represent them in the case. Court's reply
According to the court, Meta Company can not represent itself in this case, so in this case the need for official legal assistance is of crucial importance.
The letter, which required more time to seek legal assistance filed on February 1
"Meta Company is asking the court to overturn the default judgment issued on January 29, 2019. Unfortunately, it was Meta's assets in sale at the time The company initiated the liquidation process and was therefore unable to comply with its lawyer, and Meta will have the resources it needs over the next 45 days, and it is extremely important that we do not oppose it In our view, we reject a completely unjustified claim. "
Instead of granting this application, which would have granted legal representation to the Meta Company team by the end of this month, the court effectively rejected the team's letter.
The court can not take the verdict into account Letter submitted b y The defendant's representative on 10 February 2019, as the defendant is a legal person who is not currently represented by a lawyer.
In the official lawsuit filed on Tuesday, it states: "For reasons to which the court has previously indicated, the court may not consider the letter filed by the defendant's representative on February 10, 2019 If the defendant is a legal entity that is not currently represented by a lawyer, to the extent that the case is still pending, the defense lawyer has lodged a lawyer and the counsel requests a petition for relief, the court will dismiss any petition (and any contradiction to this). "
Therefore, we are back in January where we were and there is less and less time for the Meta Company team to meet the court's request while he tries to defend itself against the patent infringement lawsuit Genedics initiated almost two years ago. 19659010] Do not miss: The rise and fall of Meta – The founder of AR Pioneer reveals an inside story that led to its sale to new owners
