Anascape Ltd. v. Microsoft Corp. (E.D. Tex.)

In a case in which Anascape alleged that Microsoft infringed 12 patents regarding video game controllers, Klarquist employed both litigation and reexamination as tools to achieve a successful outcome for our client Microsoft. The firm filed reexamination requests for all 12 asserted patents, which caused the Court to stay the litigation on six of the 12 patents, effectively cutting the case in half. Klarquist then helped Microsoft win its proposed claim construction on most of the remaining six patents. After the Court also granted Microsoft’s partial summary judgment motions on both non-infringement and no willful infringement, the case settled before trial.
