Court Dismisses NCR Suit Against Palm
In March of 2001, computer system maker NCR Corp. sued Palm Inc. and Handspring on the grounds that their handheld computers infringed on two NCR-owned patents. Last summer a Judge ruled neither company infringed and yesterday, the ruling was upheld and the case dismissed.
In July of last year a US District Judge ruled that neither company had infringed on the patents. U.S. District Judge Kent Jordan in Wilmington, Delaware, upheld the finding that the two makers of handheld devices didn't rely upon patented technology owned by NCR for a personal terminal. The case is now dismissed.
Founded in 1884 as National Cash Register, NCR now sells software and hardware such as scanners and ATM machines for the retail and financial industries. The two NCR patents in question were for a "Portable personal terminal for use in a system for handling transactions," and for a "System for handling transactions including a portable personal terminal."
