NPE Sues EducationConnection and EducationDynamics
- March 19, 2012
Lumen View Technology (LVT) [NPE] filed suit against EducationConnection and EducationDynamics, alleging that the defendants’ website infringes a patent related to web tools that facilitate evaluation between a client and vendor. LVT filed one prior suit in March 2012 against Avotus. According to the complaint, LVT is the exclusive licensee of the patent-in-suit, which was developed by Eileen Shapiro and Steven Mintz at DecisionSorter before being assigned to Dalton Sentry in September 2010. In November 2010, two other patents from the Dalton Sentry portfolio were asserted by Blackstone River [NPE] against Eharmony, Humor Rainbow, Match.com, Matrima, Plentyoffish, and True Beginnings. That case was dismissed with prejudice in October 2011. 3/15, District of Delaware, 1:2012cv00321.
