Orthophoenix LLC Receives Favorable Markman Ruling in its Case against Dfine Inc., Wright Medical Technology Inc., and Stryker Corporation

Marathon Patent Group, Inc. announced that on February 2, 2015, the United States District Court for the District of Delaware issued the claim construction order in the litigation involving its wholly-owned subsidiary Orthophoenix LLC, in its case against Dfine Inc., Wright Medical Technology Inc., and Stryker Corporation. In his opinion, Chief Judge Leonard P. Stark, addressed disputed claim terms for U.S. Patent numbers 6,440,138 ("the '138 patent"), 6,863,672 ("the '672 patent") 6,663,647 ("the '647 patent") 6,248,110 ('the '110 patent"), 6,981,981 ("the '981 patent"), and 7,044,954 ("the '954 patent"). For all but one of the disputed claim terms, the court issued a favorable claim construction adopting the constructions (or minor variations thereof) proposed by Orthophoenix. The Court rejected defendants' arguments that the claims were invalid for indefiniteness, and rejected defendants' attempts to import limitations into the claims in order to avoid infringement. Russ, August & Kabat is representing Orthophoenix.
