By Memorandum Opinion entered by The Honorable Richard G. Andrews in Novo Transforma Technologies, LLC v. Sprint Spectrum L.P., et al., Civil Action No. 14-612-RGA (D.Del., September 2, 2015) (consolidated), the Court granted Defendants’ motion for judgment on the pleadings of invalidity after applying the two-step framework provided in Alice Corp. Pty. v. CLS Bank Int’l, 134 S.Ct. 2347,2354 (2014) and finding that the claims of U.S. Patent No. 5,826,034 (“the ‘034 patent”) are drawn to patent-ineligible subject matter and do not provide an “inventive concept.” Specifically, the Court found that “[t]he ‘034 patent claims the abstract idea of “translation”, the “claims do not solve a problem specific to the realm of computer networks, and the additional claim limitations do not amount to an ‘inventive concept.'”
