“Fed. Circ. Won’t Revive Etagz Patent Suit”

Law360

Following is an excerpt:

The Federal Circuit on Wednesday decided not to give Etagz Inc. another shot at a patent infringement suit against the parent of yo-yo maker Duncan Toys Co., upholding a lower court’s decision that the patent claims were invalid.

The appeals court, which heard oral arguments on March 3, issued a one-line ruling affirming the January 2014 decision by U.S. District Judge Bruce S. Jenkins, who granted Flambeau Inc.'s bid for summary judgment and declared that each of the contested claims were anticipated by prior art.

Flambeau is represented by Josephine K. Benkers, Stacy Ann Alexejun, Martha Jahn Snyder and Anthony A. Tomaselli of Quarles & Brady LLP.
