DALLAS, April 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blue Calypso, Inc. (OTCBB:BCYP), a developer of digital innovation products and services, has received written notice that the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has denied Groupon's (Nasdaq:GRPN) petition for mandamus to transfer the patent infringement case out of the Eastern District of Texas. The court cited that Blue Calypso filed the case where it is headquartered and where it developed the patented inventions. The order states that Groupon failed to demonstrate that the previous district court ruling was clearly incorrect in denying the petition to move the trial.

"This is a significant and final decision from the Federal court. The Eastern District of Texas is known for their local patent rules for efficient trial scheduling, as well as their in-depth knowledge of intellectual property (IP). We look forward to the resolution of our case against Groupon," concluded Blue Calypso CEO Bill Ogle.
