Yesterday, a KC jury hit Vonage with a $69.5M judgment for infringing Sprint’s patents. That was on top of a $58M award to Verizon for infringement by Vonage. Today, the CAFC tossed the $58M award, but on grounds that will result in reinstatement of a fairly large chunk of that award.
Talk about ‘good-news, bad-news.’ Also, will Wall Street find reason to retake equity positions in Vonage, which stock price has been hammered down to SCO levels? Only a CPA, a patent attorney, and a market analyst, each have at least an ordinary level of skill in their art would be enabled to assess that investment decision.
