Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney Secures Significant Defense Victory for Client emsCharts, Inc. in Patent Infringement Case in the Eastern District of Texas
Pittsburgh, PA, — Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC announced today that it recently received a decisive ruling for its client emsCharts, Inc. in a patent infringement case brought by Golden Hour Data Systems, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.
In this significant defense ruling, the Court found that Golden Hour committed inequitable conduct during its procurement of the patent-in-suit before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. As a result of the inequitable conduct, the Court held that Golden Hour’s patent (U.S. Patent No. 6,117,073) is unenforceable.
The finding of inequitable conduct paves the way for emsCharts to seek an award of its attorneys’ fees and costs from Golden Hour.
This decision was made by Judge T. John Ward of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas after a bench trial that began on March 5.
