SAN FRANCISCO – A California company is seeking a declaration from the court over a patent dispute.
Pebble Technology Corp. filed the judgment Feb. 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Sportbrain Holdings LLC.
According to the complaint, Pebble Technology Corp. was allegedly sued by the defendant claiming that plaintiff's smartwatch and Pebble App were infringing the 7,454,002 patent, which was believed to be assigned by the defendant. Pebble alleges that the patent is currently in re-issue before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and therefore the defendant's claims are invalid.
The plaintiff seeks the following: a declaration of the invalidity of all claims of the ‘002 patent, attorney's fees and costs and any other relief this court deems just and proper. It is represented by Michael J. Bettinger and Irene Yang of Sidley Austin LLP in San Francisco.
U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California Case number 3:16-cv-00592
