JACKSONVILLE, FL / ACCESSWIRE / March 23, 2022 / ParkerVision, Inc. (OTCQB:PRKR) today announced that on March 22, 2022, the U.S. District Court in the Middle District of Florida ruled in Qualcomm's favor on a motion styled as Qualcomm's motion for "non-infringement and invalidity" (Dkt. 494) in ParkerVision v. Qualcomm (Case no. 6:14-cv-00687). The court's order, which is sealed "for attorney's eyes only," determines that Qualcomm does not infringe the asserted claims of the remaining three patents-in-suit. It makes no findings as to the invalidity of any of the asserted claims of the remaining three patents-in-suit. This is a final order, meaning the next step is an appeal. ParkerVision intends to appeal this ruling, along with this same court's March 9, 2022 ruling excluding opinions of the Company's experts regarding infringement and validity issues.
ParkerVision CEO Jeffrey Parker commented, "We are disappointed that Judge Byron was unwilling to allow us the opportunity to present our case to a jury - a case that we believe has strong merit. This summary judgement ruling clears the path for ParkerVision to appeal this court's decisions to the federal circuit - a step that we plan to move forward on expeditiously."
