Entry of Final Judgment Clears Way for Apple and Broadcom to Appeal $1.1B Infringement Verdict in Caltech Suit

August 9, 2020

District Judge George H. Wu has entered final judgment for California Institute of Technology (CalTech) and against Apple and Broadcom nearly eight months after a Central District of California jury returned a verdict that the two defendants had infringed several Wi-Fi networking patents held by CalTech. The jury reached its verdict after a two-week January 2020 trial, awarding CalTech more than $837M from Apple and more than $270 million from Broadcom, both under a running royalty theory. Despite entering judgment, the court has postponed deciding several issues until after an anticipated appeal.
