Nintendo has announced that a U.S. District Court judge in Tyler, Texas has dismissed a lawsuit brought against the gaming giant by Fenner Investments Ltd alleging that the Wii console and its controllers along with the GameCube infringed on a patent held by Fenner Investments Limited.

Judge Leonard Davis dismissed the case Monday citing that no jury trial was needed. This isn’t the first lawsuit leveled against Nintendo over its market leading game console, and probably won’t be the last.
“We are very pleased with the court’s decision,” said Rick Flamm, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President, Legal & General Counsel. “Nintendo has a long history of developing innovative products while respecting the intellectual property rights of others. We also vigorously defend patent lawsuits when we firmly believe that we have not infringed another party’s patent, despite the risks that this policy entails. I would like to express our sincere appreciation for the tireless efforts of our legal team, which represented us so well.”
