Mark Lemley and Team Win Federal Circuit Appeal

May 3, 2017

Mark continued his winning streak in the Federal Circuit today, this time an appeal on behalf of client Newegg.  Following a jury trial in the Eastern District of Texas, Newegg moved for judgment as a matter of law, which the court didn’t rule on for almost two years.  After Mark and co-counsel Dan Brean filed a mandamus petition in the Federal Circuit asking the lower court to issue a decision, the district court did just that, granting Newegg’s motion, overturning the jury verdict, and finding no infringement as a matter of law.  The Federal Circuit affirmed that decision in its entirety.
