Shaver & Swanson, LLP wins award of attorney fees for client in defense of claims of patent infringement.

Scott Swanson in conjunction with Rick Martin, has won an award of attorney fees in a patent litigation case on behalf of a client, the defendant and prevailing party in the infringement action.

Previously the District of Colorado had ruled in favor of the firm’s client. The court ruled the client did not infringe one patent and that the claims of the second patent were invalid. Read that decision here.

The Court declared the case exceptional in light of the weak arguments and litigation strategy of the opposition, and awarded nearly $132,000 in legal fees to the firm’s client. Read the decision here.

The opposition was represented by the renowned firm of Knobbe Martens, one of the top three largest Intellectual Property law firms in the country.
