Judge Connolly Receives Productions from Two More IP Edge-Tied Plaintiffs While Others Appear to Lie Low

May 14, 2023

Two more of the plaintiffs associated with Texas monetization firm IP Edge LLC have notified Delaware Chief Judge Colm F. Connolly that they have complied with his orders respectively requiring them to produce to the court comprehensive materials concerning their corporate control, assets, and legal representation. Backertop Licensing LLC and Mellaconic IP LLC both did so on May 9, 2023, joining Nimitz Technologies LLC, another such plaintiff, which turned over a similar batch of documents in early April. This compliance leaves in limbo just four other IP Edge-linked plaintiffs, each with cases stayed before Judge Connolly, while the court, counsel for Backertop, and the sole owner of Backertop prepare for an in-person June 8 hearing concerning a motion to withdraw from representation. Backertop’s sole owner has attested to the court that she cannot attend the hearing in person as ordered on June 8 “or at any time in the foreseeable future” due to previously made travel plans, other job responsibilities, and summertime “parental obligations [that] require [her] physical presence”.
