Summary:
Sun won a partial stay in the NetApp patent lawsuit over ZFS. Sun was able to persuade the USPTO to agree to reexaminations on some of NetApp's asserted patents, three of them (there are four more). In particular, the USPTO issued an order granting reexamination of all 63 claims of the '001 patent, finding that a "substantial new question of patentability (SNQ) affecting claims 1-63" of the '001 patent exists. In addition USPTO issued a first office action rejecting all 63 claims.
