Marshall Jury Returns Verdict of Non-Infringement and Invalidity

Patterson + Sheridan recently defended our client in a case brought by Mobile Telecommunications Technologies, LLC in the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division. At trial, MTel argued that its patent covered the click-to-download option in smartphones and tablets that allows users to choose whether to download email attachments after reading an email. On Friday, September 23, 2016, after a week-long trial, the Jury returned a verdict that our client did not infringe either of the two claims of the patent and that both asserted claims were invalid for failing to meet the written description and enablement requirements of the patent laws. The Jury also returned a verdict that damages should be $0.


Congratulations to the team!
