SAGE Electrochromics Inc., filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, against View Inc. (formerly Soladigm, Inc.), according to a Dec. 21 SAGE release.

"We filed this lawsuit to enforce our patented intellectual property that protects our substantial investment in developing our pioneering, game-changing dynamic glass technology," said John Van Dine, SAGE CEO and founder, in the release. "We have worked for more than 20 years to bring our patented electrochromic glass to market. ... We believe we will prevail in this important case." 

In a separate release, officials from dynamic glass manufacturer View Inc. denied allegations of patent infringement.

"View does not believe it has infringed any valid claim of any patent and therefore has no liability to Sage," View officials said in a release. "View Dynamic Glass is manufactured using proprietary technology and processes, creating a unique product that is being well received by customers. While defending itself vigorously, View will continue to focus on serving its customers and growing the business for this exciting technology."
