Federal Circuit Upholds ZTE Infringement Verdict in InterDigital Suit

November 9, 2017

The Federal Circuit has affirmed a Delaware jury’s October 2014 infringement verdict for InterDigital, Inc. in the NPE’s case against ZTE (1:13-cv-00009). In a decision issued on November 3, the court upheld District Judge Richard G. Andrews’s post-trial ruling that the jury’s finding of infringement as to three wireless communications patents had been properly supported by the evidence, also affirming Judge Andrews’s construction of a key claim term (2016-2362). That verdict issued in the first of two trials in the same lawsuit, the second of which culminated in a finding of noninfringement for ZTE as to a fourth patent in April 2015.
