Halo Electronics, Inc. v. Pulse Electronics, Inc. 

The Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the Seagate test for increased damages is not consistent with Section 284 of the Patent Act, holding that a district court has discretion to enhance damages in “egregious” cases, such as where the defendant’s infringement is subjectively willful, without regard to whether the infringement was objectively reckless.

Fish attorney Craig Countryman, who represented Halo in the Supreme Court, discussed the significance of this ruling and the following:

  • The background of Halo and the Supreme Court’s holding
  • The unresolved legal issues that remain after the Supreme Court’s decision
  • The likely impact of Halo, if any, on NPE litigation
  • Whether (and when) defendants would now be advised to seek opinions of counsel, given the Supreme Court’s new standard
