A U.S. District Court judge has dismissed a patent-infringement lawsuit brought against Nintendo by Guardian Media Technologies.

Guardian alleged that Wii infringed on one of its patents.

Judge Manuel Real of Los Angeles granted Nintendo’s motion for dismissal on June 8, approximately six months after the lawsuit was filed.

“We are very pleased with the Court’s decision,” said Rick Flamm, NoA’s senior vice president of Legal and general counsel.

“Nintendo vigorously defends patent lawsuits. At the earliest stages of this case, Nintendo convinced the Court to dismiss this case as Guardian’s patent had nothing to do with Nintendo’s products.”
