Microsoft v. i4i Limited Partnership

__ U.S. ___, 131 S. Ct. 2238 (2011)

  • Filed an Amicus Curie brief on behalf of  AmiCour IP  in support of i4i Limited Partnership who prevailed on appeal.
  • Microsoft attempted to lower the standard to invalidate a patent from “clear and convincing” to “preponderance of the evidence”
  • The AmiCour IP Amicus Curie brief was also cited in congressional testimony on May 21, 2014 by the Small Business Technology Counsel under the topic “Improvements to the Small Business Innovation Research Programs and Unleashing American Innovation.”

Burgess et. al. v. Gilman et. al.

134 Fed. Appx. 200 (9th Cir. 2005)

  • Represented Defendants
  • Issue related to the grant of a preliminary injunction to use the famous “Mustang Ranch” trademark

McConnell v. Microsoft Corp.

U.S. District Court, District of Colorado (2010)

  • Represented Plaintiff
  • Plaintiff brought a Declaratory Judgment action against Microsoft to render Microsoft’s employment agreement void
  • Case settled before Court ruling on the Motion for Preliminary Injunction after pending for 7 months

TRI Marketing v. Mainstream Marketing Services, Inc.

2009 WL 1408741 (D. Minn. 2009)

  • Represented Defendants
  • A copyright infringement action
  • Represented Defendant in motion to dismiss action because copyright registration had not issued at the time the suit was filed.  This was an interesting case because the U.S. Circuit Court’s of Appeal are split on the issue of whether a federal case can be brought after filing the copyright application or whether one must wait for the copyright registration certificate to issue before filing suit.  This makes it ripe for U.S. Supreme Court review.
