Klarquist Clients’ Motion for Summary Judgment of Invalidity is Granted in CyberFone Systems, LLC v. LinkedIn Corp. et al. Case in Delaware

Published August 16, 2012

On August 16, 2012, the Honorable Sue L. Robinson of the District of Delaware granted a motion for summary judgment filed by Klarquist on behalf of its client that U.S. Patent No. 8,019,060, which relates generally to a method and system for processing transaction information received from mobile devices, was invalid under 35 U.S.C. § 101 because it fails to claim patentable subject matter. In this lawsuit, Klarquist represented a group of defendants, including LinkedIn, Netflix, the NBA, the NFL, Skype, Twitter, and Yelp. The lawsuit was filed in September 2012 by an entity now named CyberFone Systems, LLC. CyberFone has appealed the district court’s decision, which can be found here.
