MGT Capital Investments Provides Update on Patent Infringement Action
Apr 24 14
MGT Capital Investments Inc. was informed on April 23, 2014, that the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled on a Petition for Writ of Mandamus, sought by WMS Gaming Inc., a defendant in one of MGT's patent infringement lawsuits. Mandamus was granted, thereby vacating the decision of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi that denied a motion by WMS to transfer the case to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. As a consequence, this case will be moved to Illinois. April 23, 2014 decision does not impact MGT's ongoing action in Mississippi against Aruze Gaming Inc. As previously disclosed, a Markman Hearing (also known as a claims construction hearing) has been scheduled in that case for September 25, 2014 in Jackson, MS. Moreover, April 23, 2014 decision has no bearing with respect to the merits of the company's allegations in any of its patent infringement lawsuits.

MGT Capital Investments, Inc. announced that the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi has issued an Order setting the timeline for electronic discovery and the Claim Construction Hearing in MGT Gaming's patent infringement lawsuit. Originally filed as one lawsuit on November 2, 2012, the lawsuit has been split into three separate cases as follows: 1) MGT Gaming, Inc. v. WMS Gaming, Inc. et al, case number 3:13-cv-00691-CWR-FKB; 2) MGT Gaming, Inc. v. WMS Gaming, Inc. et al, case number 3:13-cv-00692-CWR-FKB; 3) MGT Gaming, Inc. v. Aruze Gaming America, Inc. et al, case number 3:13-cv-00693-CWR-FKB. The previously announced June 5, 2014 Claim Construction Hearing date has been changed as all parties to the litigation agreed with the Court to allow sufficient time for fulsome discovery. MGT Gaming recently filed its Infringement Contentions for both the 7,892,088 and 8,500,554 Patents.
