Kilpatrick Townsend filed an infringement lawsuit on behalf of Hunter Douglas Inc., manufacturer of window coverings and architectural products, and Andrew J. Toti Testamentary Trust against Norman International for infringement of window covering patents. Norman responded by filing eight IPRs on four patents in the lawsuit. Kilpatrick Townsend successfully argued that six of the IPR trials should not be instituted, and was able to limit the IPR trials to just three claims total on the other two petitions.
