Handal & Associates: Judge Declares Overland Patent Invalid in Media Storage Library Matter

Handal & Associates: Judge Declares Overland Patent Invalid in Media Storage 
Library Matter 
SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/27/13 --  Handal & Associates
announced today that Chief Administrative Law Judge Bullock declared
each of the claims of the '766 patent asserted against BDT by
Overland Storage (NASDAQ: OVRL) in ITC investigation number
337-TA-746 are invalid. Judge Bullock also found that BDT does not
infringe any of the remaining claims asserted against it in the
investigation. 
The Opinion released yesterday by Chief Judge Charles Bullock is a
confirmation of his earlier decision that BDT did not infringe
Overland's patents. On a review of that decision, Judge Bullock has
made a further determination that Overland's '766 patent is invalid
as being anticipated by prior art. 
The decision, if upheld by the International Trade Commission, is a
stunning defeat for Overland Storage, which for years has claimed
that it maintains patented technology relevant to media storage
libraries. "The decision is welcome news to us who have fought hard
to vindicate our client's rights against Overland's unfounded charges
of patent infringement," said Anton Handal, lead counsel.
