A U.S. district judge decided in favor of Amazon, Target, and a host of other retailers that had been sued by Kelora Systems LLC this week, settling a patent infringement case that began two years ago.

According to Internet Retailer, Kelora holds a patent on a certain type of search software that lets consumers browse online storefronts by price, size, and other item-specific parameters.

Lee Cheng, general counsel for Newegg, a defendant in the case, said the decision “is sending a message that the tide is turning against these types of frivolous lawsuits.”
