The jury in the Visto v. SEVEN Networks case being tried in Marshall in Judge Ward's court rendered a verdict last Friday. The jury found that the three products at issue infringed each of the five claims asserted from the three patents in suit, and that such infringement was willful. The jury also found that the defendant had not shown by clear and convincing evidence that the patents were invalid. Plaintiff asked the jury in opening statements for $8 million in lost profits & reasonable royalties - the jury awarded a little under half that amount - $3,683,000.
The would be the seventeenth patent verdict in the Eastern District since 1999.
