February 29, 2012 – An East Texas jury returned a $1 million verdict in favor of Spangler Law’s client Internet Machines, LLC after finding that its two patents were valid and infringed. The jury concluded that the six defendants, including PLX Technology, Inc. and GE Intelligent Platforms Embedded Systems, Inc., infringed all nineteen asserted claims through direct and induced infringement. As reported in IP Law360, “The jury delivered its verdict after a weeklong trial, finding that all of Internet Machines’ claims on the two patents were valid and that the companies had willfully violated them by selling certain PCIExpress switches — devices used in a computer’s motherboard.” Mr. Spangler was a pivotal part of the trial team that shaped this favorable result for Internet Machines. This matter is currently in post-trial briefing, which could result in full liability exceeding $18 million.
