Abstract: Let $G$ and $G'$ be finite groups that have a common central $p$-subgroup $Z$ for a prime number $p$, and let ${\overline{A}}$ and ${\overline{A'}}$ respectively be $p$-blocks of $G/Z$ and $G'/Z$ induced by $p$-blocks $A$ and $A'$respectively of $G$ and $G'$, both of which have the same defect group. We prove that if ${\overline{A}}$ and ${\overline{A'}}$ are Morita equivalent via a certain special $({\overline{A}}, {\overline{A'}})$-bimodule, then such a Morita equivalence lifts to a Morita equivalence between $A$ and $A'$.
