PS  Document 1386, when one tries to bring it up, states:  "This document is not available."  This is normally what one sees on a sealed document.  It may be the item addressed in 1388?  Or something else?

Ethanol Producer Magazine Article

Edward Carroll, CEO and chief financial officer of GreenShift, told Ethanol Producer Magazinethat while the case was being appealed, the company’s patents remained valid.  The next step for GreenShift is appeal. “We think the judge got it wrong,” he said, explaining that district court cases on patents that are appealed go to a specialized three-judge panel that only hear cases on patents. “It’s the only district court that specializes in patent law, only because it’s so complex,” he said. “In our case, we feel that the district judge did not understand the patent law, and hopefully on appeal the three-judge panel will see our view.”

3Q is Out

On October 23, 2014 the District Court in Indiana ruled in favor of defendants on their motions for summary judgment alleging that the corn oil extraction patents that have been issued to GS CleanTech were invalid. The judge’s ruling in the MDL case is not final as there are additional issues in the case that are not resolved. The Company strongly disagrees with the Judge’s ruling, intends to mount a vigorous appeal and notes that all patents remain valid until the appeals process is exhausted.

On October 23, 2014 the United States District Court in Indiana, to which our patent enforcement actions had been assigned, entered summary judgment declaring that our principal corn oil extraction patents are invalid. The decision is not yet final, pending additional issues in the case.  We intend to appeal the decision at the appropriate time and believe that we will ultimately prevail. However, the decision may have an adverse impact on our licensing activities until we achieve a favorable result in the court of appeals.

GreenShift PR

 — GS CleanTech Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of GreenShift Corporation (OTCQB:GERS), today announced that on October 23, 2014 the District Court in Indiana ruled in favor of defendants on their motions for summary judgment against the corn oil extraction patents that have been issued to GS CleanTech. GreenShift strongly disagrees with the Judge’s ruling and intends to mount a vigorous appeal. It is important to note that all patents remain valid until the appeals process is exhausted. This may be an initial victory to our opponents, but as the inventors of the corn oil extraction process that has been adopted by the vast majority of ethanol plants, GreenShift expects to ultimately prevail.

Summary Judgment?

See Here

Above the Judge, in reference to 1351 writes:   "Order on Cross Motions for Summary Judgment, Master Docket No. 1351"

See Here

In the above link the defendants refer to the same document in this manner: 

"In Docket No. 1351, the Court grants summary judgment at page 174 of the Order, stating that the ‘858, ‘516, and ‘517 Patents are invalid under 35 U.S.C. §102(b)’s on sale bar for the reasons stated in the Order."

When I look at 1351 all I can see is a statement that says it is sealed.  So for now all I can do is show how it is referred to in these other documents.
