Federal Circuit Strengthens Wirtgen’s Win at the ITC


The Patterson Intellectual Property Law litigation team of Ryan D. Levy, Seth R. Ogden, William E. Sekyi, Mark A. Kilgore, and John F. Triggs secured a major win for client Wirtgen America on Monday, March 15th. In its decision, the Federal Circuit affirmed the U.S. International Trade Commission’s ruling that Caterpillar infringed multiple road construction patents owned by Wirtgen America. Additionally, the Federal Circuit vacated a finding of no infringement on another patent and remanded that issue back to the ITC for further proceedings consistent with the decision.
