Masaba Inc. did not infringe five Superior Industries patents that disclosed a conveyor system for drive-over truck dumps and a braced, telescoping support strut, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has ruled (Superior Industries, Inc. v. Masaba, Inc., June 2, 2016, Hughes, T.). Because the district court correctly construed the claim terms “support frame,” “ramp section,” and “channel beam,” the circuit court affirmed the district court’s grant of summary judgment of non-infringement.
