VirnetX, Inc. et al. v. Cisco Systems, Inc.

Patent Trial for the Defendant

VirnetX, Inc. et al. v. Cisco Systems, Inc., Case No. 6:10-cv-00417-LED (E.D. Tex.): For client Cisco Systems, Inc., the Firm won a complete defense jury verdict of non-infringement on four VirnetX patents related to virtual private networks. VirnetX asserted the patents against virtually all of Cisco's product line, including switches, routers, voice-over-IP phone systems and VPN products.  Although plaintiff VirnetX had previously won jury trial verdicts of $368 million against Apple, and $108 million against Microsoft (leading to a $200 million settlement), the jury's verdict rejected VirnetX's $258 million damages claim against Cisco, similarly rejecting VirnetX's claim of willful infringement and eliminating any basis for its request for injunctive relief.  Tyler, Texas, March 2013.
