Patent troll ordered to pay $300k to FindTheBest in “matchmaking” case

25 11 2014
Lumen View Technology, an organization that used a patent on computerized matchmaking to sue several small companies, has been ordered to pay almost $300,000 to Santa Barbara startup FindTheBest.

The patent holder was able to pull settlements out of several small companies, but when Lumen View asked FindTheBest for a $50,000 payout, it instead got hit with a RICO lawsuit and a pledge to spend up to $1 million to beat them. US District Judge Denise Cote found the Lumen View patent invalid in November, saying it described nothing more than a computerized version of “matchmaking,” an ancient process. In June, she ordered Lumen View to pay FindTheBest’s legal fees, ruling the case was exceptional.
