ORDER ON REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
JOHN R. TUNHEIM, District Judge.
Based upon the Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law, and Recommendation by United States Magistrate Judge Franklin L. Noel dated May 14, 2015, all the files and records, and no objections having been filed to said Report and Recommendation,
Based upon the foregoing and all of the files, records, and proceedings herein, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Arctic Cat's motion to compel Polaris to reduce its asserted claims (ECF No. 77) is DENIED without prejudice. The Court additionally ORDERS that the parties shall meet and confer in order to agree on an appropriate time for claim reduction, taking into account the fact that this Court concludes claim reduction at the present time is premature, but reduction after claim construction is too late in the litigation. In the event the parties cannot come to an agreement, the parties must submit to the Court their respective proposals on when claim reduction should occur, and the Court will then make a decision as to the proper timing of claim reduction.
