The Supreme Court Refused to Hear the University of Wisconsin's Appeal in Patent Infringement Case against Apple
The legal battle between Apple and he Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) began in 2015. In 2017 Apple was ordered to pay $506 million in damages. Last September Patently Apple posted a report titled "On Appeal, Apple persuaded the Federal Court to toss out a Patent Infringement Case won earlier by WARF over the A9X Processor." WARF took it to the Supreme Court and today it blew up in their face.
According to a Reuters report, "The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear a bid by the University of Wisconsin’s patent licensing arm to reinstate its legal victory against Apple Inc in a fight over computer processor technology that the school claimed the company used without permission in certain iPhones and iPads.
WARF, who had the tasted victory against Apple, appealed to the Supreme Court, arguing that the Federal Circuit incorrectly ignored the jury’s understanding of the patent and its role in determining the facts of the case. At the very least, WARF asked the justices to send the case back to the lower court so that it can present more evidence. For more on this read the Reuters report.
