Vehicle Interface Technologies, LLC v. Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC, C.A. No. 12-1285 – RGA, June 3, 2015

Andrews, J. Defendant’s motion for summary judgment  of noninfringement is denied.

The patent at issue relates to a user interface for the driver of a vehicle.  In a related matter, the granted summary judgment that the patent-in-suit was anticipated by prior art.  The parties then submitted supplemental briefing on claim construction.  The parties dispute whether the fixed area of a screen can have any page-type information consistent with the “unique and static” limitation.  Defendant contends that there is no infringement because the cruise control and automatic speed limiter are pages, having indicators displayed in a fixed area – the speedometer. The present briefing does not address whether the fixed area of the screen can have any page information.  Summary judgment is therefore denied.
