Representing two inventors, Dr. Philip Pecorino and Mr. Aldo Medaglia, as well as their exclusive licensee, VisionArt, in a patent infringement case against Vutec Corporation, the firm achieved a major victory in the case. Judge Pamela Chen of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York (Brooklyn) issued an Order granting summary judgment that U.S. Patent No. 5,264,765 for a Video Display Screen Cover was valid and enforceable, and that Vutec is liable for patent infringement. The Court intends to schedule further proceedings relating to the award of damages to the Pecorino Plaintiffs and a determination of whether Defendant Vutec’s infringement was willful.
