Rothschild Biometric Systems patent challenged as likely invalid

On June 16, 2017, Unified filed a petition for inter partes review (IPR) against U.S. Patent 8,799,088 owned and asserted by Rothschild Biometric Systems, LLC, a subsidiary of SRR Patent Holdings, LLC and a well-known NPE. The '088 patent, directed to a system and method for verifying user identity information in financial transactions, was first asserted in district court on January 19, 2017 against USAA Savings Bank. The case promptly settled.
