Wii MotionPlus patent lawsuit dismissed A U.S. federal judge in Seattle has dismissed a patent infringement case filed by Triton against Nintendo.
Triton had accused Nintendo of infringing its patented technology (U.S. Patent No. 5,181,181) with the Wii MotionPlus accessory. It initially filed its lawsuit in Texas but Nintendo won a transfer of the case to Seattle.

In Seattle, U.S. Federal Judge Judge Richard A. Jones heard Triton's legal arguments before promptly rejecting the case.

"We feel vindicated by the court's ruling," said Nintendo of America deputy general counsel Richard Medway.

"Nintendo's track record demonstrates that we vigorously defend patent lawsuits, like the Triton lawsuit, when we believe that we have not infringed another party's patent. Consumers respect Nintendo because we develop unique and innovative products, and because we respect the intellectual property rights of others."
