∞ Judge orders Apple, Psystar case stayed

Less than a week after filing for bankruptcy, Mac clone-maker Psystar got a reprieve in the lawsuit brought against it by Apple.

Judge William Alsup order a stay in proceedings on Monday, citing Psystar’s bankruptcy filing on May 26. The judge ordered a case management conference for December 10, to survey the status of the bankruptcy and the lawsuit.

In court documents accompanying its bankruptcy filing last week, Psystar revealed that its second largest creditor was law firm Carr & Farrell, the company representing them in the Apple case.

A stay does not mean that Apple’s lawsuit is finished. It is a court imposed delay to let one court filing–in this case bankruptcy–run its course before continuing on with the original case.

Judge Alsup could very well order the Apple lawsuit to resume after meeting in December.
