O’Melveny’s Samuels Quoted in Law360 on Patent Win for Top VictoryAugust 06, 2015 Law360’s July 17, 2015, article, “Federal Circuit Sides with ASUS, Finds Video Patent Indefinite,” notes O’Melveny & Myers’ recent Federal Circuit win for Top Victory Electronics in a patent dispute and quotes partner Mark Samuels on the victory. The Federal Circuit affirmed a lower court's ruling that a video converter patent asserted by Florida Atlantic University's research arm against Top Victory and others is invalid as indefinite since it lacks a structure for performing the claimed function, the article reports. “Top Victory is pleased with the Federal Circuit's affirmance of the district court's judgment," Samuels told Law360, adding "[t]he company is pleased to have this matter behind it."
The article notes that Top Victory was represented by Samuels and partners Brian Berliner and Vision Winter, who reside in the Firm’s Los Angeles office, along with partner Jon Hacker who is based in O’Melveny’s Washington, DC office.
