The Licensor filed a consolidated patent infringement suit against the Licensee in fiscal 2010 and after a nearly three week trial that ended October 6, 2011, the jury reached a partial verdict involving two out of the six patents.

The Court determined that one of the patents (U.S. Patent 7,058,150) [the ‘150 patent] had been infringed by the Licensee, and the jury rendered an advisory verdict to the Court that the ‘150 patent is not invalid, and awarded approximately $0.4 million in damages related to that patent.

A mistrial was declared on the remaining four patents for which no unanimous verdict was reached. Subsequent to the trial, the Court issued orders consistent with the advisory verdicts of invalidity, and also issued an order that one of the four remaining patents (U.S. Patent 7,471,691) [the'691 patent] had been infringed by us.

On April 4, 2012, we filed a notice of appeal with respect to the ‘150 patent and the ‘691 patent infringement findings.

On March 16, 2012, the Court issued a decision concerning injunctive relief for the ‘150 and the ‘691 patents.

The decision provided, in part, for a sunset period of 18 months relating to the ‘150 patent, starting on October 12, 2011.
