Court Denies Summary Judgment of Patent Infringement Because of "Battle of the Experts"

In a May 28, 2015 ruling, Judge Jed S. Rakoff denied summary judgment of patent infringement because the parties’ experts had conflicting views on the issue. Judge Rakoff wrote that the plaintiff “has proffered expert testimony that” the accused product contains a particular claim limitation and the defendant “has proffered expert testimony that it does not. Upon careful review, it is clear that the resulting 'battle of experts' involves genuine disputes of material fact precluding judgment as a matter of law. Accordingly, the Court hereby denies both parties' motions for summary judgment.”
