Yes, GOOG vs. NLST was the first case - where after JEDEC sent letter to GOOG about possible NLST infringment, and NLST communicating with GOOG, GOOG sought protection from court from injunction against it's servers (to prevent stoppage of GOOG servers etc.).
As a result of that case, GOOG was forced by Judge Armstrong to turn over a GOOG server to NLST lawyers.
Examination of that server led to NLST filing NLST vs. GOOG.
Thus GOOG vs. NLST is much farther along.
Which is why when NLST/GOOG jointly requested that since there will be much repetition in the two cases, that the two cases be consolidated.
However, after consideration, Judge Armstrong refused to consolidate the cases, citing the advanced nature of GOOG vs. NLST (discovery at advanced stage etc.). And that it would only slow down THIS case if the two were consolidated, and urged the parties to instead focus on early settlement (which they have not done so far).
