KM Enterprises Files Suit Against Global Traffic Technologies

Monday, November 08, 2010

Mount Vernon, IL -- KM Enterprises, Inc. filed a Complaint on November 5, 2010 against Global Traffic Technologies, LLC ("GTT") in United States District Court for the District of Minnesota. The Complaint seeks a declaratory judgment that GTT's United States Patent No. 5,539,398 is invalid and not infringed by KM Enterprises' Emtrac Priority Management System. Last month, GTT incorrectly asserted the '398 Patent against a non-existent corporation, Emtrac Systems, Inc., as well as the President of KM Enterprises, Kris Morgan, and his two sons, who are neither officers nor shareholders of KM Enterprises. To combat the confusion in the marketplace caused by GTT's misdirected lawsuit, KM Enterprises filed today's Complaint. KM Enterprises asserts in its Complaint that GTT's '398 Patent is invalid and does not reach KM Enterprises' products. KM Enterprises also seeks damages and an injunction against GTT for the false advertising of its products, for interfering with prospective contractual relations and for deceptive trade practices. KM Enterprises is represented by Jake M. Holdreith from the national law firm Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi L.L.P.
