3M Wins Summary Judgment and Appeal in Long-Standing Patent Infringement Case

United States - Iowa

3M hired FaegreBD to take over the defense of a ten-year-old, $60 million patent case involving floor finishing products in the Southern District of Iowa. The case had been repeatedly reviewed by the Federal Circuit, and the parties were preparing for trial. Upon examining the case files, the FaegreBD team spotted a new issue regarding the plaintiff’s lack of constitutional standing. FaegreBD immediately brought and won a motion for summary judgment, and the Federal Circuit affirmed the dismissal. Middleton Inc. v 3M Company, No. 12-1283, 499 Fed Appx. 972 (Fed. Cir. Feb. 21, 2013)
