Patent Infringement Suit Dropped Against AT Client MorphoTrak

June 23, 2016 Firm News

Armstrong Teasdale lawyers convinced a holding company to drop a patent infringement suit against MorphoTrak, which specializes in fingerprint identification systems and facial and iris recognition. The case, which was withdrawn with prejudice, had been filed by Morpho Komodo, which is unrelated to MorphoTrak. 

IP Litigation partner Richard Brophy led our team comprised of associates Zach Howenstine, Maggie Szewczyk, and Mark Thomas. 

The case was filed last year in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. Our team filed a motion seeking to transfer the case to the Central District of California and sought leave to file an early summary judgment motion. Morpho Komodo dropped the suit after we served its attorneys with a Rule 11 sanctions motion seeking the recovery of costs and attorneys’ fees for bringing a frivolous suit against our client. 

MorphoTrak is part of Safran SA’s security business, which has been developing and delivering biometric solutions to domestic U.S. and international government and commercial customers for over four decades, and has significant and extensive patent portfolios in these fields.
