Kelley Drye client KeepTruckin announced that the Patent Trial and Appeal Board has ruled in favor of the company in inter partes
review (IPR) proceedings, finding all challenged claims of U.S. Patent No. 8,032,277 unpatentable. This ruling follows a July 21, 2021 PTAB decision finding all challenged claims of U.S. Patent No. 10,157,384 unpatentable. Innovative Global Systems, LLC asserted the so-called “ELD patents” against KeepTruckin on April 8, 2019.
KeepTruckin was represented in both IPRs by Kelley Drye’s Michael Zinna
and David Lindenbaum
“We thank our PTAB panel for the time and effort it put into authoring over 100 pages across two Final Written Decisions in our favor,” said Michael Zinna, Kelley Drye. “I also commend KeepTruckin for its commitment to vigorously defending itself against NPEs. While it might take less time and effort to settle disputes like this one, KeepTruckin will not pay for questionable patents. It would rather invest in seeing those patents get extinguished.”
