Apple, Broadcom get new damages trial in $1.1 billion CalTech patent case


(Reuters) – Apple Inc and Broadcom Inc on Friday satisfied a U.S. appeals courtroom to throw out a jury verdict requiring them to pay $1.1 billion for infringing California Institute of Technology patents associated to Wi-Fi know-how used in iPhones and different Apple units.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit stated the award, one of many largest in U.S. historical past for a patent case, was not justified by the file, ordering a new trial.
