This morning the Federal Circuit issued a precedential opinion in a patent case appealed from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas. Here is the introduction to the opinion.
CommScope Technologies LLC v. Dali Wireless, Inc. (Precedential)
CommScope and Dali each appeal from the district court’s entry of judgment after it denied their motions for judgment as a matter of law, for a new trial, and for attorneys’ fees. This appeal and cross-appeal involve several patents and numerous issues regarding infringement and validity, but our opinion focuses on only two: infringement and validity of U.S. Patent No. 9,031,521. Although we have thoroughly considered the other issues raised by both parties, we affirm the district court’s determinations as to those issues without significant discussion. As to the ’521 patent, for the reasons discussed below, we reverse the district court’s denial of JMOL of no infringement and affirm its denial of JMOL of invalidity.
