Judge Does Not Decide on Dimissing ZL Technologies Complaint Against Gartner

(Revised: confirmed that the source, MS&L, is ZL’s PR firm.)

While I don’t have official verification of this, I did learn the following this afternoon, regarding the lawsuit filed against Gartner by ZL Technologies over its treatment in their magic quadrants about which I posted earlier this week and which is also covered here, here, and here.

“In today’s hearing on Gartner’s motion to dismiss ZL’s complaint, the court did not come to a decision.”

Precisely because I couldn’t find any reference to this online (yet), I figured it was breaking news and should share it via the blog. I learned this information via an email from David Schraeder of MS&L, the PR firm representing ZL Technologies.

Given my limited understanding of the law, a non-decision is a decision. That is, by not deciding to throw out the case, I take to mean that the case is on and will proceed. More information will undoubtedly come out later, but I wanted to share this while it was hot.

It’s not every day I can break a story on the Mark Logic CEO blog!
