Dropbox Wins Summary Judgment in Patent Infringement Litigation

June 2019

On June 17, 2019, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California granted summary judgment in favor of Williams & Connolly’s client Dropbox, Inc. in patent infringement litigation brought by Synchronoss Technologies, Inc.  Synchronoss alleged that Dropbox’s products used by hundreds of millions of people worldwide infringed three US-based synchronization-related patents.  During earlier claim construction proceedings, the Court invalidated one of the three patents-in-suit as indefinite.  And in its June 17 opinion, after oral argument by Adam Harber, the Court found that Dropbox does not directly infringe the two remaining patents, and that one of the patents is also invalid.   

Dropbox, Inc. is represented by Thomas Selby, David Krinsky, Adam Harber, and Christopher Mandernach.
