LOL, Pittsburgy jury and Pennsylvania judge --- like Samsung won in Korea vs Apple patents.
On Wednesday, a Pittsburgh jury found that Marvell, a company with U.S. headquarters in Santa Clara, Calif., infringed on CMU patents related to “fundamental technology for increasing the accuracy with which hard disk drive circuits read data from high-speed magnetic disks,” according to a statement from K&L Gates LLP, the law firm representing the university.
“We take special pride in this trial victory because of the decades-long relationship between our firm and Carnegie Mellon University and our deep appreciation for CMU’s pathbreaking and leadership role in the Information Age,” said Peter Kalis, K&L Gates’ chairman and global managing partner, in a written statement.
The case, which was filed in March 2009, was heard before Judge Nora Barry Fischer in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania.
A spokesman for Marvell could not immediately be reached for comment.
