MELVILLE, NY--(Marketwired - July 07, 2014) - CopyTele, Inc. ("CTI") (COPY), a company that protects the rights of inventors through patent monetization and patent assertion, today announced that the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York has scheduled a claims construction hearing on August 8, 2014 at 11:30 a.m., in the ongoing patent infringement lawsuits by CopyTele subsidiary Secure Web Conference Corporation against Microsoft Corporation and Citrix Systems, Inc.
Robert Berman, CTI's President and CEO, stated, "Although we generally do not comment on upcoming Court proceedings, because our previously announced Annual Meeting of Stockholders was originally scheduled to begin at 11:00 a.m. on August 8, we are changing the start time of our annual meeting to 9:00 a.m., so that it does not conflict with the 11:30 a.m. start time of the claims construction hearing."
CopyTele's Annual Meeting of Stockholders will be held at the law offices of Ellenoff Grossman & Schole LLP, 1345 Avenue of the Americas, 11th Floor, New York, New York 10105 on Friday, August 8, 2014, at 9:00 a.m. Oral argument for the claims construction hearing will take place at the United States Courthouse in Brooklyn, New York at 225 Cadman Plaza E, Courtroom 6C at 11:30 a.m.
