Blue Calypso Announces the Court Lifts Stay and Sets Trial Date in Patent Infringement Case
Apr 2 15
Blue Calypso, Inc. announced that the Court has ruled to lift the stay on the pending patent infringement litigation in the Eastern District of Texas between the company and Groupon, Yelp, Foursquare and IZEA. A trial date has been set for December 14, 2015. In January 2014 the parties agreed to ask the court to stay the litigation in the Eastern District while the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) considered the validity of the patents. The parties agreed that if the PTAB held any of the patents valid, the litigation would be accelerated to make up for lost time. This past December, the PTAB found that twenty-eight claims across four of the patents were indeed valid. Despite the defendants' prior agreement, they opposed lifting the stay. The court overruled the defendants, lifted the stay and set an accelerated trial date. There are no further obstacles to the trial at this point.
