Cooper & Dunham Scores Hat-Trick in Federal Circuit Court of Appeals PDF Print
Wednesday, 23 June 2010 15:52

Lawyers at New York's Cooper & Dunham LLP have won three patent infringement cases in the past four months in the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington.

In February 2010, SEB, a French home appliance manufacturer, successfully maintained a Judgment awarding more than $5 million in damages against Pentalpha, a Chinese competitor. A jury found that Pentalpha infringed SEB's patent on a deep fryer. The Federal Circuit denied a petition for rehearing in May. SEB was represented at the trial and on appeal by Cooper & Dunham lawyers Norman Zivin, Wendy Miller and Gregory Carbo.

In March, Playoff, a sports trading card creator, successfully defended a grant of summary judgment in its favor holding two patents owned by Media Technologies on memorabilia cards to be invalid for obviousness. A petition for rehearing was denied by the Court of Appeals in May. Playoff was represented in the District Court and in the Federal Circuit by Cooper & Dunham's Norman Zivin and Tonia Sayour.

In June, the Federal Circuit upheld a Judgment and an award of attorneys' fees in favor of magnetic snap maker Romag Fasteners for defending a patent infringement case brought by Advanced Magnetic Closures. The Court of Appeals affirmed the lower court’s holding after trial that Advanced's patent on a magnetic snap fastener was unenforceable for inequitable conduct and that Advanced had engaged in litigation misconduct. Romag was represented at the trial and on appeal by Cooper & Dunham's Norman Zivin, Wendy Miller and Tonia Sayour.

Citations to these three Federal Circuit decisions are:
