Global Tel*Link Corporation Key Developments
U.S. District Court Judge in Dallas Grants Relief to Global Tel Link in Patent Litigation
Jul 7 15
A U.S. District Court judge in Dallas granted Global Tel Link's request to immediately halt proceedings in Securus Technologies's patent infringement suit against GTL until after the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) decides whether three patents in the case are invalid. The three Securus patents, including the "crown jewel" of its portfolio, were challenged last year by GTL under new American Invents Act procedures, and the PTO has already found that there is a "reasonable likelihood" that the three patents are invalid and should not have been issued. For its part, GTL voluntarily agreed to stay its counterclaims for patent infringement in the case so that the lawsuit would be halted in its entirety. Additionally, GTL has claims remaining in two separate cases alleging that Securus infringes a total of five GTL patents. Those cases are proceeding on schedule for trial in Dallas in February 2016, and if GTL is successful, Securus faces the potential of millions of dollars in past damages and the risk of injunctions preventing its use of GTL-patented products or future royalty payments to GTL for use of its technology.

Global Tel*Link announced that it has been awarded a contract to provide its Inmate Telephone System (ITS) to the Orange County Sheriff's Department in California. GTL was awarded the contract after its proposal scored higher in terms of experience, qualifications, investigative tools, and ability to meet the requirements in the scope of work.

As part of the new contract, GTL provided a technology update to the facilities, incorporating its market-leading ICMv inmate calling platform. With the new calling platform and associated technology upgrades, investigators in the county will be able to trace calls by inmate PIN and also utilize the industry's most robust investigative analysis tool - GTL Data IQ™ - to perform advanced keyword searches, analyze calls, build customized reports, and more.
