Intellectual Ventures I LLC et al v. Manufacturers and Traders Trust Company, 1-13-cv-01274 (DED December 18, 2014, Order) (Robinson, J.)
The court denied without prejudice defendant's motion to dismiss plaintiff's claim for infringement of its seismic array patent for lack of patentable subject matter but rejected plaintiff's argument that the motion was premature. "[Plaintiff] has been unable to identify any relevant factual dispute, and the parties agree that the Court can use [plaintiff's] proposed claim construction for the purposes of this Motion. Given this consensus, the Court is satisfied that it has the full understanding of the basic character of the claimed subject matter required for an eligibility determination. Thus, the Court finds that claim construction is not necessary for the resolution of this Motion."
