Eaton successfully defends indoor lighting patents against IPR petitions

Clients Eaton Corporation

Jones Day represented Eaton Corporation's subsidiary Cooper Lighting, LLC, in successfully defending two inter partes review petitions filed by Cordelia Lighting, Inc., against U.S. Patent Nos. 8,348,479 and 8,789,978, which relate to indoor lighting. Following Cooper's filing of its Patent Owner Preliminary Responses, the PTAB denied Cordelia's petitions in their entireties, finding that Cordelia had failed to establish a reasonable likelihood that it would prevail in showing the unpatentability of any claim of the '479 and '978 patents.
