MDL

(Originally "Muddle"). C. Reeve, Carl Hewitt and Gerald Sussman, Dynamic Modeling Group, MIT ca. 1971. Intended as a successor to Lisp, and a possible base for Planner-70. Basically LISP 1.5 with data types and arrays. Many of its features were advanced at the time (I/O, interrupt handling and coroutining), and were incorporated into later LISP dialects ("optional", "rest" and "aux" markers). In the mid 80's there was an effort to use bytecoding to make the language portable. CLU was first implemented in MDL. Infocom wrote Zork in MDL, and used it as the basis for the ZIL interpreter.

Implementations exist for ITS, TOPS-20, BSD 4.3, Apollo Domain, SunOS and A/UX.

Especially because all parties seem to believe it is likely that the cases will get transferred absent any action by this court, the motions to stay effectively request that this court allow the MDL court to rule on the motions for remand.
The removing defendants urge the court apply the "general rule" that motions to stay in this circumstance are generally granted and simply stay these cases so the motions for remand can be resolved by the MDL court.
