Claim Construction Supplemented By Judge McMahon - Hockeyline Inc. v. Stats LLC-CM

Case Number: 1:13-cv-01446 (Dkt. 31)

Judge McMahon supplemented his earlier claim construction ruling.  He rejected defendant’s proposal that the world “processor” be construed to require programming according to an algorithm specified in the patent’s specification.  Further, he construed the term “a plurality of hierarchical menu-based screens” to mean “multiple electronic screen shots, consisting of menus, or lists of options from which a user can make a selection.  The menus are organized in a hierarchy, so that the first screen shot contains the most general menu categories, and subsequent screen shots contain a more specific menu categories.”
