VirnetX files motion for new trial on Cisco's infringement

VirnetX (VHC), an Internet security software and technology company, announced that on April 3, VirnetX has filed a request for a new trial regarding Cisco's (CSCO) infringement of the '759, '504, '211, and '135 patents based primarily on VirnetX's allegations of Cisco's inappropriate conduct and arguments during the jury trial that concluded on March 14. In addition to the request for a new trial, VirnetX has moved for a judgment as a matter of law on Cisco's infringement of the '759 patent. The requested relief in the motions will not affect the Judgment against Apple (AAPL). Kendall Larsen, VirnetX CEO and President, says "These events will not deter our licensing efforts to the 4G LTE mobile markets."
