On May 15, 2018, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (“PTAB”) issued a final written decision upholding all challenged claims of Realtime Data’s U.S. Patent 7,415,530. The decision emphasized that Petitioners’ allegations could not be “reconcile[d]” with the cross-examination admissions of their expert witness.
The Board’s decision upheld the patentability of thirteen claims, including two that had previously been found invalid by a Texas jury.
In recognition of the outcome, Law.com once again featured Noroozi PC in its “Skilled In the Art” weekly IP briefing, noting: “Noroozi has pulled off another upset special.” The decision was also featured by Law360.
The petition was brought by numerous technology companies, including Dell, HP, Oracle, Riverbed, Teradata, Echostar, and Veritas, which were represented by seven major law firms.
