Federal Circuit Court of Appeals Affirms the Dismissal of Patent Infringement Suit against Office Depot, Newegg, Inc., CDW Corp. and PC Connection, Inc

On June 30, the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, in a unanimous decision, affirmed the dismissal of SpeedTrack Inc.'s patent infringement suit against a number of Oracle's customers, including Office Depot, Newegg, Inc., CDW Corp. and PC Connection, Inc., which alleged that they had violated a patent held by SpeedTrack that allows users to search for products by selecting predefined categories. Steve Bauer, co-chair of Proskauer's Litigation Department and co-head of its Patent Litigation Group, argued for the defendants (after obtaining summary judgment for them), with support from senior counsel Colin Cabral and associate John Roberts. Last year, Proskauer obtained summary judgment from the court in the Northern District of California that SpeedTrack was barred from charging Oracle's customers with infringement for their use of software (now owned by Oracle) relating to the search of their retail websites.
