Experience

  • Curt was on the litigation team representing Parker in a patent infringement case relating to automotive filters. The jury found in favor of Parker on all issues, including literal infringement, infringement under the doctrine of equivalents, willful infringement, and no invalidity. Parker was awarded its full lost-profits damages as well as enhanced damages and attorneys’ fees. Parker-Hannifin Corporation et al. v. Champion Laboratories, Inc., Civ. No. 07-1375-SJO (N.D. Ohio).
  • Again representing Parker in an automotive filter patent infringement case, Curt was on the litigation team that secured for Parker all of its lost-profits damages as well as a reasonable royalty on Champion’s sales made during the Provisional Rights period. Parker Hannifin Corporation et al. v. Champion Laboratories, Inc., Civ. No. 06-2616-PAG (N.D. Ohio).
  • Curt was on the litigation team representing Quanta Storage, Inc., a defendant in a class action antitrust litigation relating to optical disk drives. Prior to class certification, the litigation team successfully negotiated for Quanta the lowest settlement amount of any defendant in the Direct Purchaser Plaintiff action. Quanta’s settlement was less than half that paid by the next-lowest-paying defendant and a mere 1.5% of the highest-paying defendant. In re Optical Disk Drive Products Antitrust Litigation, Civ. No. 3:10-md-02143-RS (N.D. Cal.).
  • Curt was on the litigation team representing defendants Julius Glatz GmbH, LIPtec GmbH, and KneX Worldwide LLC in a patent infringement litigation relating to cigarette paper wrappers.
