Hawk accuses Defendant Instant Auto Finance Inc. of South Bend, Indiana of infringing U.S. Patent No. RE43,462 (the “‘462 patent”), which is a reissue of U.S. Patent No. 5,265,410. Claim 12 of the ‘462 patent, and possibly others, is at issue in this litigation. That claim covers a method of simultaneously displaying and storing multiple video images.
In this complaint, filed by an Indiana patent attorney in conjunction with a lawyer from Minnesota, Hawk contends that Instant Auto Finance infringed the ‘462 patent by using a video storage and display system and/or methods that infringe one or more of the claims in the ‘462 patent. Plaintiff seeks damages as well as reimbursement of costs and attorneys’ fees.
