GreenShift PR

 — GS CleanTech Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of GreenShift Corporation (OTCQB:GERS), today announced that on October 23, 2014 the District Court in Indiana ruled in favor of defendants on their motions for summary judgment against the corn oil extraction patents that have been issued to GS CleanTech. GreenShift strongly disagrees with the Judge’s ruling and intends to mount a vigorous appeal. It is important to note that all patents remain valid until the appeals process is exhausted. This may be an initial victory to our opponents, but as the inventors of the corn oil extraction process that has been adopted by the vast majority of ethanol plants, GreenShift expects to ultimately prevail.

ICM Press Release

(Colwich, Kan. –October 24, 2014)– ICM, Inc. is pleased to announce that the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana issued a sealed order on October 23, 2014 holding all asserted GS CleanTech's corn oil separation patents (U.S. Pat. Nos. 6,601,858; 8,008,516; 8,008,517; 8,234,484; and 8,168,037) invalid and not infringed.
"The District Court’s Order resolves all pending motions for summary judgment in the Multi-District Litigation." said Brian Burris, Vice-President and General Counsel of ICM, Inc. "This is a paramount ruling in the patent litigation and will be beneficial for the entire ethanol industry that ICM continues to support."
The District Court has ordered the parties to show cause by November 6, 2014 as to why the Court should not unseal the entirety of the document for public access.

Deborah Bolen, ICM, Inc.
316-977-6882 Office.
Please note that the ICM press release above specifically claims inclusion of the '484 patent while another defendant's filing makes this statement:  "The court exempts the 484 Patent from this ruling . . . "


Summary Judgment?

See Here

Above the Judge, in reference to 1351 writes:   "Order on Cross Motions for Summary Judgment, Master Docket No. 1351"

See Here

In the above link the defendants refer to the same document in this manner: 

"In Docket No. 1351, the Court grants summary judgment at page 174 of the Order, stating that the ‘858, ‘516, and ‘517 Patents are invalid under 35 U.S.C. §102(b)’s on sale bar for the reasons stated in the Order."

When I look at 1351 all I can see is a statement that says it is sealed.  So for now all I can do is show how it is referred to in these other documents.

Family (All In the)

Today, (9 years ago) David VanderGriend is chief executive of Colwich-based ICM, North America's leading designer of ethanol plants. His brother Dennis is ICM's senior process engineer.

From the Historical record


Friday, October 3, 2014


Dennis Vander Griend is the Director of Engineering at ICM.
Thus, Mr. Vander Griend was clearly aware of the testing and development of the ICM oil recovery system that was sold to various plants. Contrary to Mr. Vander Griend’s sworn statement and his attorney’s representation, Mr. Vander Griend was involved with the oil recovery system . . .
