Network Caching Technology LLC v. Novell Inc.

Case Number: CLB0024

Date: 08.13.2002

Citation: 67 U.S.P.Q.2d 1034 (N.D. Cal.)

Plaintiff’s preliminary infringement contentions show that it failed to make reasonable inquiry into factual and legal basis for infringement before filing suit, as required by Fed. R. Civ. P. 11, since plaintiff did not reverse engineer defendants’ allegedly infringing products, and did not compare those products to its patents on claim-by-claim, element-by-element basis.
