Wolf Greenfield wins ITC action

Wolf Greenfield’s litigation team prevailed, on behalf of our client MStar Semiconductor, in defending a patent lawsuit brought by Thomson Licensing at the International Trade Commission (ITC). MStar, headquartered in Taiwan, is a global leader in supplying application-specific integrated circuits for the consumer and communication product markets. Thomson sued MStar on a patent directed to a method and device for controlling matrix displays like LCDs.

Thomson requested that the ITC issue an order preventing importation of MStar display controller chips and displays and televisions that incorporate those chips.

Following a bench trial, the ITC Administrative Law Judge ruled that MStar’s chips, and displays that incorporate those chips, do not infringe Thomson’s patent.

Wolf Greenfield’s litigation team for the case includes shareholders Michael Rader and James Foster, associates Gerald Hrycyszyn and Eric Kaviar, and paralegal Claudia Butler.
