02.17.16 | Banner & Witcoff Client Seagate Technology Wins a Clean Sweep of Four Inter Partes Reviews

Banner & Witcoff client Seagate Technology won a clean sweep of four inter partes reviews invalidating two patents of Enova Technology Corp. The patents relate to computer storage device encryption technology and were asserted against Seagate by Enova in district court litigation.

In a series of four Final Written Decisions issued between September 2, 2015 and February 4, 2016, the USPTO’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board found all of the claims of both patents invalid as obvious over prior art asserted in the IPR petitions.

Banner and Witcoff attorneys Joseph Potenza, Christopher McKee, Michael Cuviello and Bradley Wright worked with attorneys of Faegre Baker Daniels LLP in the representation.
