TableMax Sues Shuffle Master

Electronic table game supplier TableMax Gaming, Inc. has filed suit against Shuffle Master, Inc., alleging infringement on three patents under which it is an exclusive licensee.

The complaint, filed in the Las Vegas division of the District of Nevada, alleges infringement of patents which protect the proprietary electronic devices and system architecture used in the TableMax multi-player games. The suit alleges that Shuffle Master’s Table Master multi-player electronic table games infringe on these patents, and seeks preliminary and permanent injunctive relief along with unspecified damages and fees.

“We have to aggressively protect TableMax intellectual property to ensure there is no infringing competition in the marketplace,” said TableMax CEO Stephen Crystal. “We previously raised our infringement concerns with Shuffle Master and had to file this suit to have them properly addressed.”
