Ricoh cleared of alleged patent infringement

Ricoh cleared of alleged patent infringement

August 25, 2021

The company was granted summary judgment, clearing it of infringement of Midwest Athletics and Sports Alliance L.L.C. (MASA) patents.

In January of 2018, MASA filed its Complaint against Ricoh, alleging direct infringement of nineteen different patents. MASA filed an amended complaint on 16 April 2018. MASA also filed a second infringement suit against Ricoh in July 2019, alleging infringement of three of the same patents. The Court consolidated the two cases, and MASA narrowed its infringement claims to five patents: 6,718,285; 7,720,425; 7,502,582; 6,411,314 and 6,509,974.

The complaint MASA brought against Ricoh “arises under the Patent Act, 35 U.S.C. § 101 et seq.” The papers state that the company “committed acts of patent infringement in Nebraska, and throughout the United States” because the company “makes, uses, sells, offers for sale, and/or imports in Nebraska the Accused Products”.

Judge Joshua D. Wolson granted Ricoh USA Inc. summary judgement against “Plaintiff MASA on MASA’s claims for infringement of U.S. Patent Nos.: (a) 6,718,285; (b) 7,720,425; (c) 7,502,582; (d) 6,411,314; and (e) 6,509,974;” and closed the long ongoing case.
