Acacia v. Oracle, et al.

January 04, 2010

We secured dismissal with zero payment for our client Compuware in a case involving more than a dozen defendants. We convinced Acacia that it did not want to go forward against Compuware, as involving Compuware would have required a particular claim construction and therefore surfaced prior art that would cause trouble for Acacia well beyond the subject patents in the lawsuit.  This assertion was backed by detailed spreadsheets of likely activities over the life of the lawsuit to show Compuware was fully prepared to go the distance if Acacia proved to be unreasonable.
