As I posted Friday, Judge Ward and Judge Davis both sent patent cases to Eastern District juries Thursday. (Mondis v. LG in Marshall and Colorquick v. Vistaprint in Tyler) and Colorquick came back with a defense verdict on Thurday.
After a break Friday, the Marshall jury came back with a somewhat split verdict today. The jury found that seven of the twelve claims were infringed, and that three of the five claims for which willful infringement was alleged were infringed willfully. It then found that seven claims were valid and six were invalid (all claims which were also found not to be infringed), and that certain products were licensed. Finally, it assessed damages at $15 million. For comparison purposes, the plaintiff asked for $168 million in closing.
I call it a split decision because it appears that the plaintiff won on some claims, but lost on others (it is not the norm to have a jury split infringement and invalidity findings with this degree of granularity), and achieved a relatively small fraction of what it sought in damages.
