VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Destiny Media Technologies (OTC Bulletin Board: DSNY) announced today that it filed a motion seeking costs in the recent US patent litigation win against Yangaroo Inc. (YOO-TSX, YOOIF-Pinksheets).
On June 7, 2010, the Honorable William C. Griesbach ruled in Destiny's favor. Destiny believes that even though Yangaroo knew their argument had no legal merit, they filed claim for other business purposes, forcing Destiny to spend time and money on a case that Yangaroo management knew it would ultimately lose.
Frivolous lawsuits are those brought to a court with a lack of supporting legal argument. These cases are filed by a party or an attorney who knows that there is little factual basis for the claims or who has done little due diligence to support the legal argument. This type of lawsuit is considered a large waste of time and money, as well as judicial resources.
According to company CEO, Steve Vestergaard, "Companies and attorneys who file baseless claims should be held accountable for their actions and we will be seeking reimbursement for our reasonable legal and other costs as are available under Wisconsin law."
