ITC Affirms Favorable Outcome for Fish & Richardson Client Quectel

On July 1, 2022, the International Trade Commission affirmed the administrative law judge's April 1, 2022, initial determination that Fish client Quectel Wireless Solutions had not committed a violation, finding all asserted patents not infringed, as well as finding many of the asserted patent claims invalid.

The Commission summarized "On review, the Commission has determined to take no position on certain non-dispositive issues. The Commission has determined not to review, and thereby adopts, the remaining findings in the ID. The Commission further determines to affirm the ID's finding of no violation with respect to each of the subject patents. This investigation is hereby terminated."

"We are excited about the Commission's decision to affirm ALJ Shaw's well-reasoned determination and are proud of the result we achieved with our client Quectel." said Tom Reger, Fish principal and lead counsel for Quectel.

In addition to Tom Reger, the Fish team was comprised of Principals Ruffin Cordell, Linhong Zhang, Katherine Reardon, Terry Stalford, and Associates Lawrence Jarvis, Elizabeth Ranks and Jared Smith.
