Federal Circuit Affirms that Creo Does Not Infringe Presstek's Patents

Los Angeles intellectual property attorneys Bob Krupka, Boaz Brickman, Marc Cohen, Brian Arnold and Nick Saros won a patent infringement case for Creo Products, Inc. against Presstek, Inc. in Wilmington, Delaware.  Following a trial, the United States District Court for the District of Delaware found that Creo did not infringe the two asserted patents related to computer controlled imaging systems for printing plates.  See Creo Products, Inc. v. Presstek, Inc., 166 F. Supp.2d 944 (D. Del. 2001).  The K&E team, with assistance from Gregory Corbett in K&E's Washington, D.C. office, also prevailed at the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  On September 17, 2002, in a precedential opinion, the Federal Circuit affirmed the District Court's judgment that Creo's computer controlled on-press imaging system does not infringe either of the two patents asserted by Presstek.  See Creo Products, Inc. v. Presstek, Inc.,___ F.3d ___, 2002 WL 31056980 (Fed. Cir. 2002).
