Electric Power Group, LLC v. Alstom S.A., 2015-1778

In a suit involving the eligibility for patenting, under 35 U.S.C. section 101, of certain claims of three patents that describe and claim systems and methods for performing real-time performance monitoring of an electric power grid by collecting data from multiple data sources, analyzing the data, and displaying the results, the District Court's grant of summary judgment in favor of defendant is affirmed where the subject matter of plaintiff's asserted patent claims fails the tests for patent eligibility under governing precedent.
