Texas Jury Returns Infringement Verdict in Papst Licensing's Mobile Device Lawsuit Against Samsung

November 8, 2018

A jury in the Eastern District of Texas has returned an infringement verdict against Samsung in litigation brought by German patent licensing firm Papst Licensing GmbH & Company Kg. In that November 6 verdict, the jury found that Samsung had infringed a single patent through the provision of certain mobile devices and awarded $5.9M in damages; in a second verdict issued that same day, the company’s infringement was determined to be not willful. The patent at issue is one of five asserted in this case and throughout Papst Licensing’s sprawling, 12-year litigation campaign. The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) has cancelled claims from each of the other four patents—including all claims asserted against Samsung—in a series of inter partes reviews (IPRs) filed by Samsung and other campaign defendants.
