SAN DIEGO – The patent owner for a portable device used for security alerts alleges a Washington company has infringed the patent with a similar security device.
Security5 LLC filed a complaint on Aug. 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against React Mobile LLC, React Mobile Inc. and Does 1-10 citing patent infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 19, 2014, it was assigned patent rights to the ’931 patent for a portable device that indicates its location to other devices using a combination of wireless technologies. The plaintiff claims it is currently developing and preparing to manufacture, sell and distribute as a personal security alert device called My Panic Button, which allegedly performs the same way as React Mobile's infringing device called React Sidekick.
The plaintiff holds React Mobile LLC, React Mobile Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly produced an infringing product that had no substantial difference from the plaintiff's and was reportedly unresponsive when notified by plaintiff about a potential infringement.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks that defendants be adjudged to have infringed the ’931 patent; that each of them, as well as their respective officers, agents, servants, employees and attorneys be restrained from directly or indirectly infringing the ’931 patent; damages; attorney's fees; interest and costs of suit; and other relief as the court may deem just and proper. It is represented by Dan Lawton and Joseph C. Kracht of Lawton Law Firm in San Diego and Justin G. Reden and Todd J. Langford of Reden & Reden APC in San Diego.
