Representative Matters

International Trade Commission

  • Certain Graphics Systems, Components Thereof, and Consumer Products Containing the Same (337-TA-1044) - Represent Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) as complainant in the ITC asserting patents covering graphics processing technology employed by smart devices such as televisions and handsets. Respondents include LG Electronics, VIZIO, MediaTek, and Sigma Designs. Achieved settlement with LG prior to the conclusion of expert discovery. After the evidentiary hearing in late 2017, the presiding ALJ issued an initial determination on April 16, 2018, finding a violation of Section 337 and recommending the imposition of an exclusion order against the remaining Respondents’ accused products.
  • Certain Communications or Computing Devices and Components Thereof (337-TA-925) Represented owner of portfolio of communications and computing patents from former enterprise communications business unit of large multinational innovation company. An ITC investigation was instituted in August 2014 as to respondent entities Apple, Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics and HTC Corporation. Google participated as an intervenor. The investigation resolved prior to evidentiary hearing in June of 2015.
  • Certain Consumer Electronics with Display and Processing Capabilities (337-TA-884) Represented owners of the patent portfolio of the original Silicon Graphics, now known as Graphics Properties Holdings, as complainant in the ITC. Investigation was instituted in June 2013 and among the respondent entities were Panasonic, Toshiba, Vizio, and ZTE. Most respondents settled. After an evidentiary hearing held over several days in May 2014, on August 29, 2014 Mintz Levin successfully obtained a recommendation for a Limited Exclusion Order against the remaining respondent, which chose to settle while Commission review of the Administrative Law Judge’s Initial Determination was pending.

Federal District Court

  • Preservation Wellness Technologies, LLC v. NextGen Healthcare Information Systems, LLC, 2:15-cv-01562 (EDTX) – U.S. Federal Circuit Judge William Bryson presided over the case, granting Mintz Levin client NextGen’s motion to dismiss after a two-hour oral argument. Judge Bryson held that Preservation Wellness’ patent at issue covers nothing more than the basic concept of a medical records system, which he said is not patent-eligible under the U.S. Supreme Court’s Alice decision.

Pro Bono

  • Received fully favorable appeal decision from the Social Security Administration’s Office of Disability Adjudication and Review for a claimant with mental health disabilities including depression and PTSD, overturning the SSA’s Initial Determination denying the claimant any benefits. Matthew represented the claimant throughout the appeal process, including a hearing in front of the Administrative Law Judge, whose decision ultimately granted the claimant benefits not only prospectively, but also extending entirely back to the original filing date of the claimant’s application for benefits.
