SAN FRANCISCO – A San Jose corporation seeks the court's help in declaring the inventors on three patents.
Previvo Genetics LLC filed a complaint for declaratory judgment on April 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Kelly Pagidas, a former employee.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Pagidas claims inventorship and alleges she was a contributor to plaintiff's patents despite failing to provide written evidence to support those claims. The plaintiff also states that one of the patents in question was filed before Pagidas began employment with the plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks declaration that the named inventors on the patents 9,282,995; 9,216,037; and 9,247,960 are accurate and correct, and any other relief as this court deems just. It is represented by Ahmed J. Davis and Sarah M. Cork of Fish & Richardson PC in Washington, D.C. and James Huguenin-Love of Fish & Richardson PC in Redwood City.
