PTAB Issues Unfavorable Decision on ‘108 Patent
JACKSONVILLE, FL / ACCESSWIRE / July 6, 2022 / ParkerVision, Inc. (OTCQB:PRKR) announced today a number of recent rulings with respect to its patent infringement cases in the Western District of Texas and related PTAB proceedings.
- ParkerVision v. Intel (case 6:20-cv-00108): The Court granted ParkerVision's motion to file an amended complaint in its patent infringement action against Intel which will add a claim of willful infringement to the case. In the same order, the Court denied an Intel motion to strike ParkerVIsion's final infringement contentions.
- ParkerVision v. LG Electronics (case 6:21-cv-00520): The Court issued its claim construction order in which the majority of the terms were decided in ParkerVision's favor. Nearly all of the terms disputed by the parties were identical to those terms constructed by the Court in ParkerVision v. Intel and other cases, and the Court adopted its same constuctions.
- ParkerVision v. Hisense (case 6:21-cv-00870) and ParkerVision v. TCL (case 6:20-cv-00945): The Court issued a scheduling order setting a trial commencement date of February 13, 2023.
- The Patent Trial and Appeal Board ("PTAB") issued its final decision in Intel's IPR action against claims of the ParkerVision patent no. 8,190,108 ("the ‘108 Patent") determining that all of the challenged claims of the ‘108 Patent are unpatentable. The ‘108 Patent is one of the patents in ParkerVision's second infringement case against Intel in the Western District of Texas (case 6:20-cv-00562).
