Parabit Systems, Inc. today announced that it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against named Defendants, Synergistics, Inc., Millenium Group, Inc., Island Master Locksmith Inc., IML Security, Gregory I. Goldman, Cathy T. Goldman, Steven R. London and Marc Seidenberg. In the Complaint, filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, Civil Action Number 19-Civ-0888, Parabit alleges that the Defendants in the lawsuit have infringed and continue to infringe one of Parabit's patents, specifically U.S. Patent No. 8,523,072, entitled "Card Reader Protection System." This valuable patent protects Parabit's pioneering development in, and relates to, card reader protection systems, in particular, devices, systems and methods for detecting card reader skimming devices. The unauthorized use, manufacture or sale of Defendants' allegedly infringing products violates Parabit's patent rights in this technology. Parabit's lawsuit therefore seeks both a permanent injunction and damages in an amount to be determined at trial.
