Motion for Summary Judgment is Denied
Graphical User Interface that provides a snapshot of sub-options available in summary options once an initial option is selected.
The court rejected the defendant’s argument that the claims were directed at the abstract idea of displaying an application summary window while the application is in an un-launched state. The Court found that the concepts were specific to devices like computers and cell phones that have not concepts outside of the context of such devices. As a result the claims are directed at solving problems rooted in computer technology. Assuming for a moment that the claims were directed at an abstract idea, the court further noted that the claims passed muster under the Machine-or-transformation test. According to the court, the claims are confined to a specific concrete machine.
