Nintendo have scored another victory before it even reached the courtroom, after a federal court dismissed UltimatePointer’s claims that the Wii infringed upon two of their patents.

The win came on December 22nd, with judge Robert Lasnik ruling that no trial would be needed after such decision, closely following news that another patent case win against Creative Kingdoms was reconfirmed.

“We are very pleased with these decisions, which confirmed Nintendo’s position from the beginning – we do not, nor have we ever, infringed these patents,” commented Richard Medway, Nintendo of America’s vice president and deputy general counsel.

“The result in this case, once again, demonstrates that Nintendo will continue to vigorously defend its innovations against patent lawsuits, even if it must do so in multiple courts and commit significant resources to defend itself. Nintendo continues to support reform efforts to reduce the unnecessary and inefficient burden patent cases like this one place on technology companies in the United States.”
