This week Octane Fitness appeared before the U.S. Supreme Court to support a 2013 petition that hopes to protect patent holders from groundless lawsuits. Local media covered the case leading up to the Supreme Court appearance.
Northwest Community Television (Channel12) recently visited the Octane Fitness headquarters to interview President & CEO Dennis Lee about heading to Supreme Court as the Octane Fitness about changing U.S. patent law standards was argued on February 26, 2014.
After the Supreme Court heard arguments, Lee felt that the Octane team displayed a powerful showing. “Of course it is hard to say how the court felt about the argument. The justices pushed hard and asked tough questions of both sides,” Lee said. “We have a strong argument for changing the law and it is very much in need of change. Both our law firm, Harness Dickey, and our patent insurance company, ISIPC, have been great partners and were there in full force today.”
The Supreme Court is expected to render their opinion in the next 60-90 days.
