White and Williams Represents Gust in Patent Infringement Cases
Gust, Inc., formerly known as AngelSoft, was sued for patent infringement in the Eastern District of Texas by non-practicing patent entity AlphaCap Ventures, LLC. In its answer, Gust set forth defenses of patent invalidity and non-infringement. Gust’s motion to transfer to the Southern District of New York is pending before the court.
In a separate action, Gust sued AlphaCap in the Southern District of New York, alleging patent invalidity, non-infringement, and other claims including Abuse of Process and Sherman Act violations stemming from AlphaCap’s attempts to assert its invalid patents against those in the crowdfunding industry.
Gust is represented by Frank Bruno with assistance from George Xixis, Ari Indik, Sam Eichner, and Vince Barbera.
