Toyota Ducks Self-Degreasing Patent Suit

August 14, 2015 – In The News

Toyota Motor Corp. dodged a patent suit vs. Reactive Surfaces Ltd. LLP after a Texas federal judge concluded that a maker of degreasing products failed to allege the auto giant was attempting to invalidate the plaintiff's patent applications simply by filing its own, similar applications.

The U.S. Patent and Trade office found that Reactive did not allege a justiciable controversy, and dismissed the litigation without prejudice.

Toyota Motor Corp. is represented by Eric Schweibenz, John Kern, Robert Mattson, Tia Fenton and Thomas Yebernetsky.
