CAFC upholds sanctions against NJ patent attorney

A story on on Nov. 18 begins:

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has upheld a lower court's order that patent lawyer Jean-Marc Zimmerman and patent holding company Eon-Net pay $631,135.18 in sanctions and fees. In the lower court case, the trial judge found "indicia of extortion" in patent lawsuits filed by Zimmerman.

A Nov. 16 order in Eon-Net L.P. v. Flagstar Bancorp denied Eon-Net and Zimmerman's motion to stay a monetary judgment against them issued by the lower court on May 17.

Jean-Marc Zimmerman is a patent attorney [reg. no. 36978] based in Westfield, NJ.
