The patent litigators at Mohr IP Law recently prevailed in a Markman hearing for their client as part of a patent infringement lawsuit. A Markman hearing is a unique component of patent infringement litigation and involves establishing what a disputed patent covers and what it doesn’t cover. At the conclusion of the hearing, the judge issues an order declaring what the patent covers based on the law as presented in the contested hearing.
In this case, the patent involved an automobile accessory for opening car doors. Mohr IP Law attorneys Joseph Mohr and Caleb Mayfield argued on behalf of their client at the Markman hearing and achieved the court ruling they were seeking. The next phase of the litigation will center on patent infringement liability and validity of the patent in suit.
