Served as lead counsel on behalf of Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC who was sued in the United States District Court, Eastern District of Michigan by the plaintiff, Wacoh Company. The plaintiff alleged that Mercedes and other automobile manufacturers infringed U.S. Patent No. 6,512,364, which relates to accelerometers used in the safety belt and anti-lock systems in vehicles. After a thorough investigation we determined that the suppliers of the accelerometers were responsible for indemnifying the claims of infringement against Mercedes. Thus, we successfully negotiated for a dismissal of Mercedes from the litigation.
