Cammie is also actively engaged in pro bono matters and is currently on a team working with the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley and Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights in a class action against several defendants accused of loan modification scam. 

Some of Cammie's recent engagements include:

  • C5 Medical Werks, LLC v. CeramTec GMBH (D. Colorado pending): Cammie is currently part of a team representing C5 Medical Werks in a trademark dispute concerning its right to use color as a functional feature for its orthopedic joint replacement products.

  • Flextronics International et al. v. ICU Medical, Inc. (N.Y. Arbitration pending): Cammie is part of a team representing Flextronics in an arbitration proceeding relating to breach of contract of a design services agreement.
  • CardSoft et al. v. VeriFone Systems, Inc. et al (Federal Circuit 2014): Cammie was part of a team representing VeriFone with their appeal before the Federal Circuit involving patents related to a virtual machine in point-of-sale payment terminals. Based on the district court's claim construction, the jury found VeriFone infringed the asserted patents. On appeal, the Federal Circuit reversed the claim construction and found VeriFone non-infringing as a matter of law based on the new claim construction urged by VeriFone. Cammie also helped with the opposition to CardSoft's cert petition to the Supreme Court.
  • Mentor Graphics Corp. v. Synopsys, Inc. et al. (D. Or. 2014): Cammie was part of a trial team representing Synopsys in a patent dispute involving seven patents related to emulation and verification technologies. On summary judgment, the district court dismissed all but one patent asserted by Mentor. Cammie also helped with different aspects of the appeal.
  • Hamilton Beach Brands, Inc. v. Sunbeam Products, Inc. (Fed. Cir. 2013): Cammie co-authored a brief on behalf of Hamilton Beach requesting rehearing en banc on the issue of the proper application of the on-sale bar.
  • Tekmira Pharmaceuticals Corp. v. Alnylam Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Mass. State Court 2012): Cammie was on a team representing Tekmira Pharmaceuticals in this bet-the-company trade secret misappropriation case. The case settled with Alnylam agreeing to pay Tekmira millions in cash and near-term milestone payments and to transfer patents and patent applications to Tekmira. The San Francisco Daily Journal described the settlement as a "huge win" for Tekmira.
