    Successful Settlements in Patent Infringement Litigation regarding Message Exchange System

N&A represented the defendant in a patent infringement lawsuit.
The defendant was sued based on a patent regarding a message exchange system made by the patentee.  Since N&A vigorously refuted the patentee’s argument, the patentee admitted that the defendant’s products did not infringe upon their patent, and the defendant was not required to make any payment.
