Attorney General William Sorrell filed a lawsuit against the company last May. Sorrell alleges MPHJ, claiming to have a patent on the process of scanning documents and attaching them to emails, sent deceptive letters to businesses and non-profits throughout Vermont demanding payment for patent infringement.
Repeated attempts by MPHJ to get the case dismissed at the federal level were denied.
