Global Cash Access, Inc., v. NRT Technology Corp, et. al., CA. 15-00822-MMD0GWF, (D. NV. March 25, 2016).
6,081,792 | Entitled “ATM and POS terminal and method of use thereof."
Motion to Dismiss Patent Claims Granted
Method for obtaining cash after the initial request at the ATM has been denied
The Court noted that the claims were directed at “[a] method of providing money, goods, services or the like to an account holder based on an account when the daily ATM limit set by a bank has been met, or when a debit or credit card [personal identification number (“PIN”) ] cannot be remembered.” This was a long standing abstract idea. Additionally, the claims simple utilized known computer components and software for their known purposes without elevating the process from the “well-understood, routine, conventional activities” already used to obtain cash. Thus the claims fall under Alice.
