Loramax filed patent infringement suits in the Eastern District of Texas against fifty companies, claiming that virtually any company email distribution service infringed an expired patent Loramax obtained. After Finnegan pressed an invalidity defense, which included an inter partes review (IPR), and filed motions to dismiss asserting invalidity under Section 101, Loramax voluntarily dismissed its claims against FedEx.

One year after accusing longstanding Finnegan client FedEx of patent infringement in the Eastern District of Texas, non-practicing entity Catharon IP dismissed its claims against FedEx with prejudice.

When Walgreen Co. faced a damage award of nearly $20 million, including prejudgment interest, for infringement of a patent on a “head chair,” the company turned to Finnegan. Although Walgreen had sold only $220,000 of the product, a jury awarded over $1 million in lost profits and another $10 million in future lost profits, which grew to nearly $20 million with interest. On appeal, the Federal Circuit agreed with our argument that the jury award, and the expert testimony on which it was based, was so speculative that it could not stand. The court granted a remittitur, reducing the damage award to $220,000—the amount of actual sales—and further reversed the award of prejudgment interest as it was based on future sales that had not occurred.

Nearly a year after accusing firm client FedEx of patent infringement in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Big Baboon, Inc. of Sunnyvale, California, agreed to dismiss its claims against FedEx.  The stipulated dismissal came after Finnegan attorneys persuaded Big Baboon that its accusations were baseless.

Zoll Lifecor filed eight petitions for inter partes review, challenging eight patents owned by Finnegan client Philips.  Following preliminary responses filed by Philips, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) denied institution because Zoll Lifecor failed to identify its parent company Zoll Medical, who was in litigation with Philips, as a real party in interest. Zoll Lifecor then appealed the PTAB’s decisions to the Federal Circuit and all eight appeals were dismissed on Philips’s motion for lack of jurisdiction.
