LG Electronics Wins New Damages Trial in $3.5M Core Wireless Case
- August 26, 2016
LG Electronics (LGE) has been granted a new trial on damages against Core Wireless Licensing S.a.r.l., following a Texas jury’s March finding that the company had infringed two user interface patents (8,713,476; 8,434,020) asserted against it by the Luxembourg-based NPE. In a memorandum opinion and order issued on August 23, District Judge Rodney Gilstrap ruled that the jury’s damages award had not been supported by sufficient evidence, accepting LGE’s arguments that a Core Wireless damages expert had provided the jury with a flawed reasonable royalty calculation. Judge Gilstrap also declined to grant a new trial on the issues of infringement and the asserted invalidity of the patents-in-suit.
