Bid To Sanction Jones Day In $89M IP Suit Premature: Judge
Law360, Los Angeles (January 11, 2017, 4:43 PM EST) -- Jones Day attorneys and their client Cherokee Investment Partners LLC won’t be sanctioned for allegedly making frivolous counterclaims in an $89 million patent licensing dispute with a company that invested in an energy catalyzer, a Florida federal judge said on Wednesday, calling the request “premature.”
Plaintiff Andrea Rossi and his Leonardo Corp. — inventor of the energy catalyzer, or E-Cat, low-energy nuclear reactor, asked the court on Tuesday to sanction Cherokee, its founder Tom Darden and their Jones Day attorneys, saying they attempted to mislead the court by denying allegations they know to be true and bringing “frivolous” counterclaims.
