FindTheBest Files Civil Lawsuit Under RICO Against Patent Troll
Today’s filing before the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York alleges overwhelming facts demonstrating that the defendants engaged in a pattern of racketeering, attempted extortion, abuse of process, and civil conspiracy. FindTheBest co-founder and CEO, Kevin O’Connor, has been vocal throughout this process and strongly believes that the conduct by the defendants is nothing more than an extortion attempt by a non-practicing entity (NPE).
FindTheBest CEO Kevin O’Connor stated: “These patent trolls come after young companies with frivolous claims and try to bully them into settling because they know it's cheaper to pay than to fight. This patent troll picked the wrong company to bully and I've personally committed $1 million to right this wrong. This RICO filing is an attempt to use our civil justice system to combat the patent troll mess and the increasingly aggressive methods they are using to extort money from innocent companies.”
