LOS ANGELES – A Texas company alleges a router sold by a Playa Vista company infringes a patent.
VenKee Communications LLC filed a complaint on Sept. 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Belkin International Inc. alleging patent infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that VenKee is the owner of the U.S. patent No. 6,504,515 titled “High Capacity Broadband Cellular/PCS Base Station Using a Phased Array Antenna.” The plaintiff alleges the defendant sells a router that infringes this patent.
The plaintiff holds Belkin International Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly sold and/or offers for sale products, equipment, or services that directly infringe plaintiff's '515 patent.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment that defendant has infringed in one or more claims of the ’515 patent, and award for all damages, with interest, costs, disbursement, attorney's fees and such other appropriate relief. It is represented by Jeffrey Francis Craft of Devlin Law Firm LLC in Calabasas; Timothy Devlin of Devlin Law Firm LLC in Wilmington, Delaware; and Craig S. Jepson of Toler Law Group PC in Austin, Texas.
