Locke Lord Obtains Ruling Invalidating Patent Infringement Claims Against Factory Direct Wholesale

A Locke Lord team of Bryan Harrison (Atlanta), Alan Clement (New York) and Tim Xia (Atlanta) obtained a ruling invalidating all patent infringement claims brought against the Firm's client, Factory Direct Wholesale (FDW), in a case before the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. Judge Philip Gutierrez ruled the patents asserted by Nine Stars Group (U.S.A), Inc. (NSG), were invalid. NSG failed to appeal this judgment in a timely manner and FDW is awaiting a further order awarding the client its costs in defending NSG’s claims.
