WATERLOO — A jury in the United States has ruled that Sandvine did not infringe patents owned by a U.S. company.
The jury in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas found Thursday that Packet Intelligence LLC did not prove “by a preponderance of the evidence” that Waterloo-based Sandvine infringed three of its patents.
Packet Intelligence, based in Montgomery, Texas, filed a lawsuit in 2016 against Sandvine, a provider of broadband network equipment now owned by Francisco Partners, demanding US$14 million damages.
Erise IP, the law firm acting for Sandvine, said in a news release that “the decision is momentous, especially because it comes less than a month after Packet Intelligence won a jury verdict on the very same patents against NetScout.”
In that case, the jury awarded Packet Intelligence damages of US$5.75 million.
