Judge Issues Ruling in Immersion’s U.S. Court Litigation Against HTC

Last updated:

In a U.S. District Court lawsuit in which Immersion Corporation has accused HTC of infringing on several of its patents concerning haptic feedback technologies, the judge has agreed to go forward with litigation over two of the patents in question, but has dismissed three others.

Immersion has announced that the judge issued opinions on claim construction and summary judgment motions.

In issuing his opinion, the judge denied HTC’s summary judgment argument that it did not infringe two of Immersion’s patents, U.S. Patent No. 6,429,846 and U.S. Patent No. 7,969,288 but invalidated three other of Immersion’s patents in suit on procedural grounds.

“We are pleased with the Court’s decision to rule in our favor with respect to two of our strongest patents in suit,” said Victor Viegas, chief executive officer and president at Immersion.

“While it is always expected that certain patent claims will be trimmed during the course of litigation,” continued Mr. Viegas, “we are disappointed in the judge’s procedural interpretation, believe we have a strong basis for overturning it, and are considering appropriate avenues for relief. In light of this ruling, we remain extremely confident in our case and look forward to the upcoming trial.”
