Marathon Patent Group, Inc.'s Subsidiary, E2E Processing, Inc. Receives Markman Ruling

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 9, 2015) - Marathon Patent Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: MARA) ("Marathon"), a patent licensing company, announced today that on July 2, 2015, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas issued the claim construction order in the litigation involving its wholly-owned subsidiary E2E Processing, Inc. ("E2E").

Doug Croxall, Chief Executive Officer of Marathon, stated, "The Markman order is very encouraging. While we believe it has the potential to motivate possible resolution in the form of a reasonable licensing agreement, absent such we will confidently continue to work towards the November 9th trial date."

E2E previously entered into settlement and license agreements with Nordstrom, Inc., Crocs, Inc. and Hallmark.com LLC.

E2E had previously asserted infringement related to U.S. Patent 6,981,222, entitled "End-to-end transaction processing and statusing system and method." The E2E portfolio consists of four (4) issued patents that disclose systems for achieving process improvements in the production and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) space.

Liner LLP represents E2E in these enforcement cases. The complete Markman Order may be found at the company's website.
