    final judgment in Apple case

    Unfortunatley there were no damages and no atty. fees awarded, just $2.7 million in interest.

    On the bright side, since no damages were awarded, Apple may just pay up, rather than appeal.

      • Keep in mind, OPTI keeps winning everything that goes to court. I do realize that attorneys get paid to appeal but at some point I would hope that companys can think for themselves and settle and save considerably more fees. Maybe this sounds like being too reasonable. I would also think that this certainly helps the upcoming AMD suit which OPTI has won so many of the Markman pretrial points.

    • strange that attorneys fees arent comepnsated for ?

      anyway looks like this settlement values OPTI at about $2.35

      sure will be interesting to see if Apple appeals

      vs. § CASE NO. 2:07-CV-21-CE
      APPLE, INC. §
      In accordance with the jury’s verdict, which was reached on April 23, 2009, and the court’s
      rulings on motions for summary judgment and judgment as a matter of law, the court renders the
      following judgment:
      The court having determined that the defendant Apple, Inc. (“Apple”) infringed claims 73,
      74, and 88 of U.S. Patent No. 6,405,291 (the “‘291 patent”); the jury having failed to find that any
      of the asserted claims are invalid; the court having found no willful infringment; it is ORDERED,
      ADJUDGED, AND DECREED that the plaintiff OPTi Inc. (“OPTi”) have and recover from Apple
      a reasonable royalty of $19,009,728 in actual damages. The court awards an additional $2,696,974
      in pre-judgment interest; the total award is $21,706,702. The plaintiff is the prevailing party in this
      litigation, and the court awards costs to the plaintiff as the prevailing party. The court concludes that
      this case is not exceptional under 35 U.S.C. § 285 and denies any attorneys’ fees request. The
      judgment shall bear interest at the lawful federal rate. This is a final judgment; all other pending
      motions are denied.
