The firm recently obtained a $14.5 million verdict on behalf of its client, Microsoft, in Microsoft Corp. v. Motorola, Inc., et al., No. 10-cv-1823 JLR (W.D. Wash.). The case involved Motorola’s breach of commitments it made to standard setting organizations that it would license certain of its standard essential patents on RAND (reasonable and non-discriminatory) terms. The case was the first of its kind to proceed through trial, and established precedent that will guide future disputes over the licensing of standard essential patents. The verdict was widely reported by various media outlets, including the New York Times and the Seattle Times. Art Harrigan led CHLE’s trial team, which included Chris Wion and Shane Cramer.
