WHIPgroup’s client, Hobbs Medical has been awarded attorneys’ fees after a successfully argued Motion to Dismiss. The case was filed in federal court in the District of Massachusetts with claims for patent infringement. The Court held that this case was “exceptional” under U.S. patent law and thus warranted a granting of attorneys’ fees. In reaching that conclusion, the Court noted the plaintiff had relied on outdated law, and even after being informed of that fact, failed to take steps to address these issues. After a hearing on August 2, the Court granted WHIPgroup’s Motion to Dismiss with prejudice. The plaintiff then filed a Motion to Alter Judgment which the Court promptly denied while at the same time WHIPgroup filed its Motion for Attorneys’ Fees.
