CeeColor has filed eight prior suits against Eyelock, Gemalto, Healthcast, Imprivata, Irisguard, Key Source International, and Oculis Labs. Alan Kipust is the named inventor on the patent-in-suit, which he assigned to Sitka Spruce Security in September 2010. According to the complaint, CeeColor is the exclusive licensee of the patent-in-suit. 6/29, District of Delaware, no judge yet assigned, 1:2012cv00837.
