$847M Damages Award Returned in Funded Phase of General Access Solutions Campaign

June 30, 2024

An Eastern District of Texas jury has returned a verdict in favor of General Access Solutions, Ltd. (f/k/a Access Solutions, Ltd.) (GAS), awarding $583M in damages for the infringement of a first patent-in-suit; $264M, for infringement of a second. Chief Judge Rodney Gilstrap presided over last week’s trial, in a case that GAS filed against Verizon (Verizon Wireless) back in October 2022, a couple of months after GAS apparently secured, according to public records, the backing of an unnamed litigation funder. Ericsson intervened in the suit, as the supplier of some of the accused equipment.
