Infringement claims against cell phone carrier T-Mobile and its vendors, Nokia and Ericsson, concerning four patents for cell phone infrastructure equipment were properly barred by the doctrine of patent exhaustion, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has held. The lower court’s order granting the defendants’ motion for summary judgment was therefore affirmed (High Point SARL v. T-Mobile USA, Inc., February 18, 2016, per curiam).
