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.
