In January 2018, 3M filed a complaint alleging infringement of four patents by Elo in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware. Later that year, on behalf of both Elo and MNTech Co. Ltd., Jones Day prepared and filed petitions for inter partes review challenging all claims of all four patents-in-suit. The dispute was resolved in January 2019. The PTAB proceedings were terminated and the district court action was dismissed with prejudice.
