Centripetal Networks Sues Palo Alto Networks over 12 Patents, Newly Asserted

March 12, 2021

Centripetal Networks has filed a third case in the Eastern District of Virginia, this one asserting a dozen network security patents against Palo Alto Networks (1:21-cv-00313), doubling the number of assets litigated in this campaign. Last October Judge Henry C. Morgan Jr. of the same district, following a 22-day bench trial conducted entirely “by Zoom”, entered judgment in Centripetal’s favor and against Cisco, to the tune of nearly $2B in enhanced past damages, together with a royalty to run on certain products in stages for the next several years. Posttrial briefing is well underway before Judge Morgan.
