SAN FRANCISCO — A security system developer has filed suit against a competitor for alleged patent infringement.
e.Digital Corp. filed a complaint Sept. 12 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Netatmo LLC, alleging that the Chicago corporation violated the rights of the plaintiff by infringing upon their intellectual property.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that e.Digital Corp. was issued Patent 9,002,331 on April 7, 2015, and 9,178,983 on Nov. 3, 2015, both entitled “System and Method for Managing Mobile Communications.” However, the plaintiff discovered that the defendant infringed upon its patented work with the intent to market, sell and distribute the accused products, which caused the plaintiff to suffer from damages to its business and profit.
The plaintiff holds Netatmo LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly infringed upon a patented work without authority from the owner, gained profit at the expense of the plaintiff and encouraged infringement of its customers and end users by using the accused products.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks for relief and judgment in its favor, compensation for damages, attorneys' fees, costs, expenses and other relief as the court may deem just. It is represented by Anton N. Handal, Gabriel G. Hedrick and Lauren G. Kane of Handal & Associates in San Diego.
