Securus Technologies, a top criminal and civil justice technology solutions provider for investigation, monitoring, public safety and corrections, has issued corrections to GTL’s press release released on June 7, 2016. Securus stated in a press release that the claims by GTL contained a number of statements that were inaccurate and misleading. The press release from Securus was necessitated by the need to provide clarification and correction about some incorrect claims made by GTL.
Richard A. Smith, CEO of Securus Technologies, stated that GTL fully understood that patent litigation takes a number of years and costs lots of money in the region of millions of dollars in pursuing it. Securus wondered what GTL planned to achieve using the “scorched earth” approach that it was using. Securus asserted that it would continue to assert its own patent in response to the approach favored by GTL. GTL’s approach does not have any logic given that Securus has a superior technology and a patent portfolio that is more extensive. Richard added that he had challenged GTL to a technology bake-off challenge but they had not responded to it a number of times. He added that it all made sense now why the company opted for what it is doing now by issuing press releases that are in dire need of corrections. He equated the silence on the challenge as most telling from GTL.
