Baker Marquart Obtains Favorable Resolution of Patent Action Against Cirque du Soleil over Las Vegas

On behalf of its client, Hologram USA, Baker Marquart brought claims for patent infringement against Cirque du Soleil and the Michael Jackson Estate over use of holographic technology in the Las Vegas show “Michael Jackson One.” The parties discussed settlement over the course of the litigation, but no agreement was reached until claim construction discovery closed. At that time, Baker Marquart was able to obtain terms far superior to those that had been previously offered. The settlement included an agreement that the parties would work cooperatively going forward.
