Another Waco Defense Verdict (No a Different One)

A Waco jury in Judge Albright’s court found the asserted claims not infringed and invalid in Motion Offense v. DropBox. My numbering may be off, but I think that gets patent plaintiffs to a 54.5% win rate in Waco. The jury found none of the eight claims across four patents infringed, that none of the claims were entitled to an earlier priority date, and that all eight claims were proven invalid. But there’s a twist as to what was submitted to the jury.

Verdict in Netlist v. Samsung

A Marshall jury in Judge Gilstrap’s court returned a verdict Friday afternoon in favor of the plaintiff in Netlist’s case against Samsung.  The jury found at least one of the claims in each of the asserted patents infringed, none of the 11 claims proven invalid by clear and convincing evidence, and that infringement of at least one of the asserted claims in each of the three patents/patent groups was willfully infringed.  The jury set damages at $303.15 million.
