Nintendo said today it prevailed in another Wii patent lawsuit after plaintiff Impulse Technology Ltd. voluntarily dismissed itself from the case. Nintendo says Impulse abandoned the lawsuit following an unfavorable decision from Judge James Gwin of the U.S. District Court in Cleveland that “undermined Impulse’s legal arguments.”
“We are very pleased with the court’s ruling, which forced Impulse to walk away from this lawsuit,” said Nintendo of America deputy general counsel Richard Medway. “Nintendo vigorously defends patent lawsuits when we firmly believe that we have not infringed another party’s patent.
“We will continue our tradition of developing unique and innovative products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others.”
