A Tyler jury in Magistrate Judge John Love's court returned a verdict in Chrimar v. Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, USA, Inc. last week. The defendant had stipulated to infringement, so the jury was just presented with invalidity, damages, and a couple of enforceability theories. The jury found that the claims hadn't been shown by clear and convincing evidence to be invalid, set damages at $324,558.34, and parenthetically noted that this was $1.2067 per part. It went on to find that Chrimar had not been shown to have committed fraud on the defendant, nor had it breached a contract with the IEEE. Had it answered "yes" to the last question it would have answered another question asking it where the defendant was a third party to that contract.
