Camera Stores and Electronics Shops That Purchased Flash Memory Devices Directly From SanDisk May Be Eligible for Class Action Lawsuit
If you own or operate a business that purchased flash memory products directly from SanDisk, such as memory cards for digital cameras or USB drives, you may be eligible to participate in a class action lawsuit against the company.
According to the lawsuit, SanDisk obtained fraudulent patents by making false representations to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. SanDisk allegedly used these fraudulent patents to improperly exclude fair competition in the marketplace for flash memory devices.
The flash memory patent at issue in the lawsuit, which SanDisk allegedly referred to as the company’s “crown jewel” patent, allowed SanDisk to assert patent infringements on its competitors to prevent them from selling competing flash memory products, the suit claims.
As stated in the complaint, at least 75% of all NAND raw and finished flash products imported and sold in the United States is either manufactured and sold by SanDisk or manufactured through licenses of SanDisk patents. SanDisk allegedly charged its customers monopoly prices for flash memory products and threatened companies that purchased flash memory devices from its competitors.
