Securus Technologies And Their Battle With GTL

Securus Technologies has clients in law enforcement, public safety and corrections facilities. Their focus is to serve and protect. They try to make the world a safer place. Their headquarters is located in Texas. Securus has made corrections to a GTL release in order to clarify numerous incorrect claims.

 

The first allegation stated GTL was seeking injunctions for damages from Securus regarding a patent. The Patent Appeals Board agreed to move forward with the lawsuit filed by GTS. The correction made by Securus states that due to the case being stayed in Federal Court GTL cannot seek the relief they claim they are owed. Securus is going ahead with a rehearing and the patent has not yet been validated. For this reason GTL can no longer seek an injunction.

 

The second allegation involves the technology used by Securus for visitor monitoring purposes. This system is required in jails and prisons in the United States who use a system for visualization. The correction says GTL actually has only one independent claim and that they do not use this security feature.

 

The third allegation states the PTAB decided all innovations can receive a patent. This allowed GTL go back to court to protect their technology. Securus responded by saying the PTAB did not make this determination and said they would review the claim instead. No decision has been reached as to whether GTL will be able to go back to the courtroom.

 

The fourth allegation claimed GTL was within a few months of going back to court. They said three patents were targeted by Securus. Securus corrected this statement by saying they are not months away from a court date. Securus believes they do not use and of GTL’s technology.

 

The fifth allegation seeks damages for the patented technologies of GTL being used by Securus. Securus says they do not use any of their technology so no infringement has occurred.

 

The sixth and final allegation claims Securus has a pattern of suing their competitors and are now putting their claims in the media. Securus says this information is false. They currently hold double the amount of patents possessed by GTL.
