Packet Intelligence Expands Campaign in Wake of Two Jury Trials as Judge Gilstrap Shields Alice Decision Within Findings of Fact

September 2, 2018

Late in 2017, Packet Intelligence LLC tried its overlapping claims of patent infringement against NetScout Systems (in October) and Sandvine (in November) to separate Eastern District of Texas juries, with contrasting results. The first jury found NetScout Systems to have willfully infringed multiple claims, also found not invalid, awarding Packet Intelligence $5.75M in damages, while the second jury found in Sandvine’s favor on infringement, awarding the NPE nothing. Neither case appears to have reached final resolution, with District Judge Rodney Gilstrap having ruled on some, but still in receipt of multiple other, post-trial motions. Meanwhile, Packet Intelligence has filed new lawsuits—asserting patents from the same network traffic monitoring and packet processing family—against Ericsson (2:18-cv-00381) and Nokia (2:18-cv-00382) in the same forum.
