Juries. Patents. Success.
A recent patent we obtained for our client Nexsan, U.S. Patent No. 9218406 covers a private cloud storage system in which security is maintained by storing the data on individual users' devices (sold under the Transporter brand). Data is shared on a peer-to-peer basis. A central server governs access based on user privileges, but does not store any of the shared data. This patent has issued in one of the fields in which recent court rulings have propelled rapid evolution of the law.
We successfully defended clients Iatric and CynergisTek in the District Court and Federal Circuit against claims of patent infringement relating to software for detecting fraud and misuse of protected health information. Sunstein litigation group obtained judgments of patent invalidity under Section 101.
Sunstein litigation team won a $14.6 million dollar verdict for patent infringement following a two-week jury trial for our client Exergen, the company famous for the temporal artery thermometer.
On behalf of our client Sage Therapeutics we brought suit against a medical marijuana dispensary using the name Sage Naturals.
