Katten Obtains Summary Judgment for Kyocera Regarding Java Programming Patents

Firm News | August 12, 2013

The US District Court for the Northern District of California granted summary judgment of noninfringement to Katten client Kyocera Communications Inc. and other defendants in a suit over Java programming patents. As reported in Law360,  the case—originally filed in 2010—alleged that defendants infringed multiple claims of the patents by manufacturing and selling their mobile devices. Judge Ronald M. Whyte declared the infringement argument was inadequate, and ruled the plaintiff did not sufficiently show that the allegedly infringing system operates in a similar manner to its patented system. Partners Eric Cohen, Michael Dorfman and Kristin Holland represented Kyocera in this matter, with Eric arguing the motion on behalf of all six defendants last November.
