Paul Allen’s Patent Suit Against Google, Apple, More Dismissed
By: Chloe Albanesius
A Washington district judge on Friday dismissed a patent case that Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen filed against nearly a dozen top technology firms, but an Allen spokesman said his team views the move as “procedural matter” and will appeal the decision.
Allen failed to adequately explain how companies like Apple, Google, and Yahoo are infringing upon his patents, Judge Marsha J. Pechman wrote in her decision. Allen’s “complaint is little more than labels and conclusions,” she said.
