GuestTek Interactive Entertainment Ltd., an innovative leader in providing technology solutions for the hospitality industry, announced today that it has filed a lawsuit against Nomadix, Inc. for infringement of multiple U.S. patents by, among other things, selling and offering for sale certain Nomadix Access Gateways employing various versions of the Nomadix Service Engine. The complaint, which was filed in the United States District Court for Delaware, seeks a permanent injunction, as well as unspecified damages. GuestTek also asks for a determination that Nomadix’s infringement was willful and that GuestTek be awarded treble damages as a consequence.
“For over two decades, GuestTek has invested heavily in research and development,” said Arnon Levy, President and CEO of GuestTek. “We hold over 135 patents and patent applications protecting our technology.
