By Memorandum Order entered by The Honorable Leonard P. Stark in Peeble Tide LLC v. Arlo Technologies, Inc., Civil Action No. 19-769-LPS (D.Del. January 31, 2020), the Court granted Defendants’ motions to dismiss in three separate patent infringement cases brought by Plaintiff Peeble Tide LLC after finding that the two patents asserted, U.S. Patent Numbers 10,261,739 and 10,303,411 are invalid under 35 U.S.C. § 101 because they are directed to patent ineligible subject matter under the Alice analysis. The Court also denied different Defendants’ motions to dismiss in five separate patent infringement cases brought by Plaintiff Mimzi, LLC after finding that Defendants could not meet their burden at Step Two of the Alice analysis with respect to the one patent asserted in those actions, U.S. Patent Number 9,128,981. Id. at *4-7.
A copy of the Memorandum Order is attached.
A notable practice point is that the Court noted in its Memorandum Order that it “continues to find its experimental procedure of addressing multiple Section 101 motions from separate cases in one hearing is an efficient use of judicial resources and a beneficial tool for resolving the merits of Section 101 motions.” Id. at *1.
