Wolf Greenfield’s Litigation Team Secures Dismissal of Patent Lawsuit Against Our Client E Ink

On July 9, 2013, Wolf Greenfield’s litigation team secured an order dismissing a patent infringement lawsuit brought by CopyTele, Inc. against our client E Ink, the world’s largest supplier of electronic paper displays. Judge Edward Chen of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California granted E Ink’s motion to dismiss CopyTele’s complaint for lack of standing.

The suit, filed on January 28, 2013, alleged infringement of several patents purportedly directed to components of electrophoretic displays (also known as electronic paper displays).

The Court agreed with E Ink that CopyTele had earlier assigned away its rights in the patents-in-suit and therefore lacked standing to sue E Ink. Immediately after issuing its opinion, the Court entered final judgment in E Ink’s favor.

Wolf Greenfield’s litigation team for this case included attorneys Michael Rader, Gerald Hrycyszyn and Eric Kaviar and paralegal Saron Harry.
