Wolf Greenfield Secures Dismissal of Case Against Our Client Six Victor
On August 14, 2013, Wolf Greenfield’s litigation team secured a dismissal of a lawsuit Ruoey Lung Enterprise Corp. and OKO Universal Inc. brought against our client, Six Victor Ltd. in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts.
In the suit, Ruoey Lung alleged that Six Victor infringed on a patent covering a type of adjustable bed. OKO alleged that Six Victor breached a contract with OKO.
Early on, Wolf Greenfield filed for an inter partes reexamination of the patent with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and convinced the Court to stay the case. Wolf Greenfield was then successful in invalidating Ruoey Lung’s patent in the reexamination.
With the patent claims gone, OKO tried to lift the stay and continue the court battle. In opposition, Six Victor moved the Court to dismiss the remaining claims because, with the patent claims out of the case, there was no reason for the Court to exercise jurisdiction over the dispute. The Court agreed with Six Victor and dismissed the entire case.
Wolf Greenfield’s litigation team for this case included attorneys Michael Albert, John Strand, and Eric Kaviar. The reexamination was handled by Ed Walsh, John Strand, and Eric Kaviar.
