About fifteen minutes ago a Marshall jury in Judge Ward's court found for the plaintiff in QPSX Development 5 PTY LTD v. Nortel, et al., 2:05cv268 (Nortel was the only defendant remaining at trial). The jury found infringement, willful, and (I assume) no on invalidity. Damages awarded were $28.1 million. I'll post more as I hear more, but offhand, following the two defense verdicts last fall, this is the first plaintiff's verdict in a Marshall patent case since last spring. It is the second patent trial in the district, following the dismissal of the plaintiff's case during trial in the Clear-Value case in Tyler earlier this month. Trial began Monday morning and arguments began at midmorning this morning. Jury declined to go to lunch (at least initially - I don't know if they did later) and returned a verdict around 2:30pm.
