Wavetronix v. EIS Electronic Integrated Sys., No. 08-1129

In a patent infringement action involving systems for monitoring the flow of automobile traffic on thoroughfares, summary judgment for defendant is affirmed where: 1) defendant's monitoring device does not practice the "defining traffic lanes" step of the disputed claim and therefore does not literally infringe plaintiff's patent; and 2) plaintiff's infringement by equivalents claim fails, as the manner in which defendant's monitoring device defines lanes is much different than the patented invention.
