Zuru was sued by Swimways Corporation and Vap Creative for alleged breach of their swimming fish patent, the suit sought injunctive relief and damages.

Zuru challenged the patent and the court determined that all of the claims asserted to have been breached by Zuru are actually invalid due to them being anticipated or obvious. As such, the court granted Zuru’s motion seeking Summary judgement in full.

The decision rendered by the court reaffirms Zuru’s position all along that Swimways patent was illegitimately issued and that the lawsuit was without merit.
