Southern District of California Jury Says No, Just No

September 24, 2023

A late 2022 Federal Circuit decision overturned a Southern District of California ruling that had invalidated five Finjan, Inc. patents asserted against ESET as indefinite. Back before District Judge Cathy Ann Bencivengo went the case, the parties presenting their arguments over three of those patents to a jury earlier this month. On September 11, that jury returned its verdict, answering “no” to every question asked of it, other than what amount in damages should be awarded, which answer it left blank. Judgment has been entered (again) in favor of ESET.
