Mentor Graphics Wins Motions for Summary Judgment; Court Finds Cadence's MercuryPlus Infringes Mentor Patent

4/9/2002 - Mentor Graphics Corporation (Nasdaq: MENT) announced today that the United States District Court for the Northern District of California Court granted Mentor's motion for summary judgment of infringement against Cadence Design Systems (NYSE: CDN). In a 14 page opinion entered in Case No. 00-3291 SI, the Court found that the Cadence MercuryPlus product infringed both claims of U.S. Patent No. 5,574,388 that were the subject of Mentor's motion. This order follows on the heels of the same Court's recent denial of a summary judgment motion brought by Cadence to dismiss the patent case for lack of standing.
