Abstract: Let and be finite groups that have a common central -subgroup for a prime number , and let and respectively be -blocks of and induced by -blocks and respectively of and , both of which have the same defect group. We prove that if and are Morita equivalent via a certain special -bimodule, then such a Morita equivalence lifts to a Morita equivalence between and .
