AT&T Mobility Successfully Dismisses Claims for Direct Equivalent Infringement and Indirect Infringement
Plaintiff filed a patent infringement action again AT&T Mobility LLC ("AT&T Mobility") for "either literally or by equivalents, and either directly or by inducement or contribution" infringing the patent-in-suit. AT&T moved to dismiss.
AT&T made three arguments in its motion. First, AT&T argued that the plaintiff's claims should be dismissed because they were plead conditionally. Second, AT&T asserted that the plaintiff had failed to adequately allege direct equivalent infringement. Third, AT&T contended that the plaintiff had failed to properly plead the indirect infringement claims.
