Monolithic Power Sys., Inc. v. O2 Micro Int'l, Ltd.
Water Pik, Inc. v. Med-Systems, Inc.

Hamilton Beach Brands, Inc. v. Sunbeam Prods., Inc.

Hamilton Beach Brands, Inc. (“Hamilton Beach”) appeals from the decision of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia granting in part Sunbeam Products, Inc.’s (“Sunbeam”) motion for summary judgment finding claims 1 and 3–7 (“asserted claims”) of U.S. Patent No. 7,947,928 (“the ’928 patent”) invalid as anticipated. The district court also found that Sunbeam did not literally infringe the asserted claims of the ’928 patent. Hamilton Beach’s appeal is timely, and we have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1295(a)(1). For the reasons below, we affirm the district court’s ruling that the asserted claims are invalid under the on-sale bar.
