09:03 EDTNLSTNetlist SMART Modular patent claims rejected by USPTO
Netlist announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office, or USPTO, has ordered reexamination and rejected all of the claims of United States Patent No. 8,250,295 which have been asserted in a patent infringement lawsuit filed by Smart Modular Technologies, against Netlist. Netlist requested reexamination of the claims on September 15 by presenting the USPTO with six different combinations of prior art that had not been considered in the original examination of the '295 patent. After reviewing Netlist's reexamination request, the USPTO concluded that there is a reasonable likelihood that these claims will be found invalid based on each of the six combinations and thus ordered reexamination. The USPTO then followed the order granting reexamination with an Office Action where it formally rejected the claims based on the same six prior art combinations.

08:40 EDTNLSTDiablo Technologies comments on Netlist injunction
Diablo Technologies commented on the announcement that Netlist (NLST) has filed a motion for preliminary injunction against the company and its technology partner SanDisk (SNDK), in an attempt to impede the manufacture and sale of the ULLtraDIMM product. Diablo stated, "Notably absent from Netlist's press release is the fact that their recent motion has abandoned much of their previous positioning. Netlist's recent amendments now limit their claims of lost sales to the NVvault. These changes can be attributed to Netlist's failure to substantiate claims in the so-called anonymous 'whistleblower' letter, on which they have based their case from the start. The request for a Preliminary Injunction will take months to resolve and Diablo will continue to deal with these baseless accusations in court. We view their latest move as a public relations stunt, which we will address in our existing claim against them." Diablo filed its defense and a counter claim against Netlist's unfair business practices on September 25.
