District Court Denies Blue Coat's Motion to Stay in Finjan v. Blue Coat II

EAST PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 26, 2016) - Finjan Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: FNJN), a cybersecurity company, provided an update in Finjan, Inc. v. Blue Coat Systems, Inc II (5:13-cv-03295-BLF, "Blue Coat II"), with the Honorable Beth Labson Freeman presiding. On July 15, 2015, Finjan filed this second case against Blue Coat, accusing Blue Coat of further infringing ten Finjan patents. Blue Coat moved to stay Blue Coat II pending proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO") and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board ("PTAB"). Today, the Court's "Order Denying Blue Coat's Motion to Stay Proceedings Pending Final Resolutions of Finjan 1 or Inter Partes Reviews and Ex Parte Rexaminations" (Doc. 67) was decided in Finjan's favor.

Blue Coat has filed 9 IPRs and 2 reexams against 6 of 10 Finjan patents in this case. To date, the USPTO and PTAB have decided against institution of 6 of the challenges; four IPR challenges were instituted (consolidated to three), and one reexamination are pending. Weighing heavily in the Court's decision, Blue Coat was not the originator of any of the three instituted IPR petitions but rather piggybacked on the filings of others. To date, he remaining seven patents asserted in the second case are not subject to any patent office proceeding.

Finjan has pending infringement lawsuits against FireEye, Inc., Sophos, Inc., Symantec Corp., Palo Alto Networks, Inc., ESET and its affiliates relating to, collectively, more than 20 patents in the Finjan portfolio.
