Palmersheim & Mathew Secure Complete Reversal in 2nd Circuit

Anand C. Mathew

Palmersheim & Mathew partners Robert J. Palmersheim and Anand C. Mathew secured a complete reversal of a patent fee awarded against Checkpoint Systems, Inc. and converted the judgment into a $250,000 award in favor of their client.

After a Pennsylvania federal district court judge entered a $10 million patent fee award against Checkpoint, the firm appealed the judgment to the Federal Circuit, which reversed the award after discovering the district court misapplied Supreme Court law.

The plaintiff attempted to seek certiorari review in the United States Supreme Court, which was defeated. The partners were also successful in obtaining their client’s costs in appealing the judgment.
