Delaware Court Calls for Retrial in Intellectual Ventures’ First Case against Motorola Mobility Inc.

Today the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware declared a mistrial in Intellectual Ventures’ (IV) first infringement complaint against Motorola Mobility Inc., concerning Motorola hardware and features of Google’s Android environment (specifically, Google Play).  

"Mistrials are an occasional fact of life, and it is disappointing (for us, and probably also for Motorola) that the jury could not reach a unanimous verdict.  But we are looking ahead to the retrial on these patents and also to our two other upcoming trials with Motorola Mobility Inc. later this year," said Melissa Finocchio, chief litigation counsel for Intellectual Ventures.

The two additional patents in IV’s case against Motorola are currently scheduled to go to trial in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware on or after April 7, 2014.

In 2013, IV filed a second patent infringement complaint against Motorola in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, which is scheduled to go to trial on or after November 17, 2014.
