Is Identifying An Allegedly Infringed Claim Sufficient To Survive Dismissal?

Not necessarily.

Advanced Screenworks, LLC sued Gold Star Ventures and its owner for alleged infringement of U.S. Patent 8,146,647 for "Screen Clipping System and Clips Therefor."   Advanced alleges that Gold Star infringes the '647 Patent by:
making, using, offering to sell, and selling products, methods, and apparatuses for the screening of windows, doors, pool cages, and patios, including [Defendant's] "Screening Buddy Dual Purpose Screen Retainer System" ... which comes within the scope of the ['647 Patent] without authority or license from [plaintiff].
Advanced further alleges that Gold Star has infringed on "at least claims 1, 2, and 3 of the '647 Patent."  But identifying the patent and the specific claims infringed was not sufficient to survive dismissal:
An allegation of direct patent infringement is “insufficient under Twombly and Iqbal if it simply recites some of the elements of a representative claim and then describes generally how an accused product operates, without specifically tying the operation to any asserted claim or addressing all of the claim requirements.” Blue Water Innovations, LLC v. Fettig, 2019 WL 1904589, *2 (S.D. Fla. Mar. 8, 2019) (citation omitted).
Because Advanced "does not sufficiently tie any specific operation to a patent claim," Gold Star's motion to dismiss is granted.  The Court did grant leave to file a Second Amended Complaint.

  1. Irrespective of receiving daily oral or future injectable depot therapies, these require health care visits for medication and monitoring of safety and response. If patients are treated early enough, before a lot of immune system damage has occurred, life expectancy is close to normal, as long as they remain on successful treatment. However, when patients stop therapy, virus rebounds to high levels in most patients, sometimes associated with severe illness because i have gone through this and even an increased risk of death. The aim of “cure”is ongoing but i still do believe my government made millions of ARV drugs instead of finding a cure. for ongoing therapy and monitoring. ARV alone cannot cure HIV as among the cells that are infected are very long-living CD4 memory cells and possibly other cells that act as long-term reservoirs. HIV can hide in these cells without being detected by the body’s immune system. Therefore even when ART completely blocks subsequent rounds of infection of cells, reservoirs that have been infected before therapy initiation persist and from these reservoirs HIV rebounds if therapy is stopped. “Cure” could either mean an eradication cure, which means to completely rid the body of reservoir virus or a functional HIV cure, where HIV may remain in reservoir cells but rebound to high levels is prevented after therapy interruption.Dr Itua Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Parkinson's disease,Schizophrenia,Lung Cancer,Breast Cancer,Lupus,Lymne Disease,psoriasis,Colo-Rectal Cancer,Blood Cancer,Prostate Cancer,siva.Fatal Familial Insomnia Factor V Leiden Mutation ,Epilepsy Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic small-round-cell tumor Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Scoliosis,Brain Tumor,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Toxicity
