Apple moves forward with Psystar litigation

Tue, Jun 30, 2009


About a month ago, Psystar filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, a move which put a temporary “stay” on its litigation with Apple.  Shortly thereafter, Apple filed a motion with the court seeking to lift the stay, arguing that Psystar’s bankruptcy filing was merely a tactic being used to delay litigation, and to avoid handing over, both in paper form and via deposition, important financial information that  it seemed to be purposefully withholding from Apple.

Last week we reported that the court granted Apple’s motion to lift the stay, and according to The Mac Observer, Judge Alsup, who is overseeing the case, recently set up a case management conference between the 2 parties scheduled for July 9.

Judge Alsup will use the hearing to establish the guidelines for discovery requirements based on his prior ruling that Psystar must produce financial documents along with someone competent to testify about the company’s finances…

Psystar has until July 2 to file a joint case management order in cooperation with Apple, or to file notice that it is appealing Judge Mark’s order lifting the stay.

Psystar already laid out a weak argument in opposition to Apple’s motion to lift the stay, but if we know Psystar like we think we know Psystar, it’s only a matter of time before they appeal Judge Mark’s order with some half-assed and convoluted motion that should be good for a laugh.

And so the saga continues…
