Fed. Cir. (2009)
Federal Circuit Affirms the Award of Summary Judgment of Non-Infringement to Ice Marine.
The Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed the award of summary judgment of non-infringement to our client, Ice Marine. The plaintiff’s patent relates to a hull structure originally intended for reducing wave creation in the canals of Venice. Plaintiff asserted the patent against Ice Marine’s high speed Bladerunner pleasure boats which are based on a design created by the famous racing boat naval architect, Lorne Campbell. The first Bladerunner set the world’s record for the Round England speedboat race.
