Summary:                 

The Court denied the motion to dismiss on the grounds that many of the issues could not be resolved without addressing pending claim construction issues between the parties. “Defendants failed to adequately demonstrate the absence of fact and claim construction issues such that the only plausible reading is that of patent-ineligibility.” Nevertheless, the court invited the parties to file a similar motion following claim construction.
