Jurors in the Tyler, Texas, courtroom of Judge Robert W. Schroeder III delivered the verdict in favor of VirnetX on Sept. 30 after one week of trial. The case is VirnetX Inc., et al. v. Apple Inc., No. 6:10-CV-417, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.

VirnetX formerly won two noteworthyjury awards against Apple with Caldwell Cassady & Curry as lead counsel, counting a 2012 patent infringement verdict of $368 million involving four VirnetX network patents used in iPhones, iPads and other Apple products. Two years later, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit upheld the jury’s infringement finding on two of the contested patents and confirmed a finding of no invalidity on all four patents before vacating the damages award. That ruling allowed Apple to stop paying royalties and cleared the way for a retrial on damages.
