Cross Match Files Patent Lawsuit Fingerprint Scanner Manufacturer

Cross Match Technologies : 17 March, 2010  (Company News)
Korean Suprema and US Distributor Mentalix have been accused of infringing Cross Match Technologies' patents on biometric finger print scanners sold in the US
Cross Match Technologies, a global provider of biometric identity solutions, has filed a lawsuit against Suprema and Mentalix in the US District Court in Tyler, Texas.

Korea-based Suprema manufactures the RealScan-D and RealScan-10 fingerprint scanners. Mentalix is based in Plano, Texas and distributes those products. The lawsuit was in reaction to the first known sale of Suprema devices in the US, in which Suprema / Mentalix sold these devices to the US Census Bureau.

Cross Match's complaint alleges that Suprema's live scan products infringe Cross Match's patents that protect the company's proprietary systems and methods, which allow for enhanced fingerprint acquisition.

Cross Match seeks a variety of relief from the Court, including a permanent injunction prohibiting Suprema's and Mentalix's sale of infringing products, as well as monetary damages, including treble damages for willful infringement and recovery of attorneys' fees.

Cross Match has a rich history of innovation. The company and its subsidiaries have been granted more than 110 patents and have many additional patent applications pending in the field of biometric identity solutions. Cross Match intends to vigorously enforce its intellectual property rights to protect its proprietary technologies.
