SCC Demands a Jury Trial over Infringement

Static Control Components (SCC) has filed a response with a U.S. court over Aster Graphic Inc’s (Aster) claim it did not infringe SCC’s patents.

It wants the Southern Division of the Central District Court to give it a jury trial in its case against Aster.

Based on the legal documents received by RT Media, Aster submitted its case before the District Court back on July 17 in answer to the original complaint filed by SCC. In its complaint SCC accused Aster of infringing its U.S. patents 9,599,949 (‘949) and 9,671,742 (‘742).

In that response, Aster’s denied infringement of SCC’s above-mentioned patents claiming SCC’s patents to be invalid. Further, it argued SCC was not entitled to any increase in damages or any injunctive relief because SCC did not assert willful infringement, nor could it prove it had suffered severe or irreparable harm.

On September 8, SCC filed its response with the court. SCC argues that Aster’s response should be “barred by virtue of the fact that it is infringing and has infringed at least one claim of each of the ’742 and ’949 patents as set forth in SCC’s Complaint.”

SCC demands Judge David Carter support its request for “a trial by jury on all issues so triable.”
