On Thursday, September 25, the Federal Circuit affirmed the trial judge’s decision to set aside a $1.5 billion verdict in Microsoft v. Alcatel Lucent, which has been the largest patent case to ever to go verdict. Judge Brewster of the Southern District of California previously set aside the verdict and entered a judgment of non infringement as a matter of law on two patents, alleged by Alcatel Lucent, to cover MP3 digital music technology. The judge also ruled that Alcatel Lucent failed in all respects to present a legally sound theory of damages.

John Gartman, a principal in the San Diego office, was lead counsel on the case, which included a large team from across the firm’s national litigation group.
