Crossmatch in patent complaint v Integrated Biometrics

Biometric identity management company Crossmatch said it filed a complaint in the US District Court for the District of Delaware against Integrated Biometrics.

“At issue are numerous Integrated Biometrics scanners that infringe four Crossmatch patents covering core functionalities of fingerprint scanners, including auto-capture, print error detection and capturing roll prints,” said Crossmatch.

“According to the complaint, all of Integrated Biometrics’ FBI-certified scanners infringe Crossmatch patents 9,280,695; 7,203,344; 7,277,562 and 6,483,932.”

Crossmatch said it was seeking a permanent injunction prohibiting Integrated Biometrics’ sale of infringing products, as well as monetary damages, including treble damages for willful infringement and recovery of attorneys’ fees.

Crossmatch general counsel Kathryn Hutton said: “Our technologies and expertise are helping organizations of all sizes achieve enhanced levels of security and efficiency.

“As a successful innovator in a critical area of national and personal security, we will forcefully defend our intellectual property and take action against those who violate it.”

Crossmatch is being represented by Latham & Watkins LLP and Morris, Nichols, Arsht & Tunnell LLP in the case.
