Lightning Poker Sues PokerTek
March 6, 2022
Lightning Poker, Inc. (a maker of "live" electronic poker tables) is once again suing it's main competitor PokerTek, Inc., alleging blatant patent infringement. The patent in question (U.S. Patent #7,306,516) "relates generally to an electronic poker table with a center monitor screen showing multiple community cards and betting information for each player," according to a Lightning Poker announcement.

PokerTek, in turn, argues the lawsuit is "without merit," and will fail as did the previous lawsuits brought about by Lightning Poker, Inc. in the year 2006. Both Pennsylvania-based Lightning Poker Inc. and the North Carolina-based PokerTek, Inc. have released statements saying they plan to vigorously defend their intellectual properties.
