Securus Technologies Responds to the False GTL Allegations

Securus Technologies is a prisoner service provider that ensures proper convicts service delivery across its correctional facilities. Securus released responses to the GTL press release on 7th June 2016. Securus maintains that the GTL’s declarations contained various statements which Securus finds misleading and inaccurate. This article talks about some of the clarifications that Securus made concerning the false allegations.

 

GTL had earlier claimed that the United States Appeals Board and Patent Trial had agreed on the decision for the company to seek injunctions and damages against Securus Technologies. GTL argued that PTAB had further validated the decision and the court case was still pending in the Texas federal court. Securus maintained that GTL was not authorized to seek legal relief due to the overstayed GTL Texas federal court case. Securus Technologies then declared its move for the patent rehearing. The case was not valid, and therefore, GTL could not seek injunction or damages.

 

GTL claimed that Securus Technologies patent board sealed most of its charges that guard Securus Technologies visitation technology tender. This was with reference to the extra GTL assertion. Securus holds that while the PTAB failed to review all the allegations, GTL was only over-asserting one allegation which is free from the reliable claims of the copyright court case. GTL had also opposed and claimed their satisfaction by the PTAB’s determination that the copyright originality was untrustworthy.

 

Securus Technologies gave the rightful answers to this allegation by stating that the copyrights board did not determine the claimed allegations as false. It concluded that the board would make a review of the asserted claims. The Chief Executive Officer of Securus Technologies is Richard A. Smith. He stated that GTL knew the copyright related litigations would take several years and would cost multi-million dollars. He supplemented that the court case pursued by GTL did not show any form of reasonable financial interests and practice from the GTL Company.
