Nintendo has prevailed in a patent-infringement lawsuit brought against it by Triton over Wii MotionPlus accessory.

Judge Richard A. Jones of the US District Court dismissed the lawsuit following a ruling that rejected Triton’s legal arguments.

“We feel vindicated by the court’s ruling,” said Richard Medway, NoA’s deputy general counsel. “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.”

Triton had initially filed suit in Texas, but Nintendo won a transfer to Seattle.
