Successfully defending GTECH against infringement accusations
Finnegan client GTECH Corporation was sued in the Eastern District of Texas for patent infringement by Flashmark Technologies and various individuals. GTECH sells lottery terminals and tickets, and Flashmark accused the company of infringing a patent related to document cancellation. The court issued its Markman decision, construing the claims in a way that precluded a finding of infringement against GTECH. Following this decision, the parties filed a stipulation of noninfringement.
