Now “That’s” What I’m Talking About

El Paso federal courtroom – Carol M. Highsmith

Several years ago a college girlfriend of mine posted about an experience she had on a sidewalk. She had selected a somewhat innovative outfit – I don’t recall the details but something about leggings and a net tunic and something else. A little edgy, but she had faith in it. As she crossed a small park a man in front of her stopped to look at her. She was a little uncomfortable until he broke out into a smile and shouted “now ‘that’s’ what I’m talking about!” She said it just made her day, and I could just see the smile on her face. I had one of those moments reading Judge Kathleen Cardone of El Paso’s order in Proxense v. LG, which noted that she had received a follow-on case – the fifth to allege the same patents (apparently due to the new Waco docket allocation order). “To facilitate effective docket management,” she wrote, “all related cases are ordinarily allocated to the Judge that was randomly assigned the earliest-numbered related case” citing the 2003 random assignment order I noted the other day, and reassigned the case to Judge Albright, who co-signed the order to confirm his consent to the reassignment. Now ‘that’s’ what I’m talking about. An order that facilitates effective docket management.
