Fitbit Patents Lodged Against Jawbone Invalid, Judge Says

Updated on

Fitbit Inc.’s three patents used in its case against Jawbone Inc. are invalid, a U.S. trade judge said as he canceled an August trial between the rival makers of fitness devices.

U.S. International Trade Commission Judge Thomas Pender ruled that the patents don’t cover ideas eligible for protection, according to a notice posted on the agency’s electronic docket. Pender said the case should be terminated “in its entirety.”
