A Marshall jury in Judge Gilstrap’s court rendered a verdict in favor of plaintiff Netlist in its case against Micron Thursday afternoon. The jury found claim(s) in both asserted patents infringed, and willfully so. It assessed $425 million in damages for one patent, and $20 million for the other. There were no invalidity issues submitted, but the patent claim generating the $425 million has been found invalid in a PTAB decision that is subject to appeal, and the other patent is under review.

I am pleased to announce a special extended two-hour free webinar (.5 hour ethics) next Tuesday from noon to 2pm Texas time on AI for trial lawyers – current agenda HERE. The panel is open to all, and you can register for free HERE. After a welcome by ABOTA president La’Verne Edney, Professor Liz Fraley will talk about ethics, and I will chair a panel of lawyers on the use of AI in pretrial and discovery. Judge Jerome Evans will wrap us up with a judicial panel including Texas federal judges Xavier Rodriguez from the WDTX and our Tex-ABOTA Jurist of the Year Amos Mazzant from the EDTX. It will be informative and fun. Did I mention it’s free too?
