Commil, USA v. Cisco Systems, Inc.
On April 8, 2011, a jury in Marshall, Texas returned a verdict in favor of Commil USA, LLC on all infringement claims asserted against Cisco Systems, Inc.
The jury, which deliberated less than two hours, decided Cisco induced infringement on a patent for wireless technology developed by three Israeli engineers and awarded Commil $63.8 Million dollars. Commil had purchased the infringed patent in 2006 for $400,000.00. Les Payne represented Commil at trial and worked with trial counsel from Sayles Werbner (Mark Werbner & Dick Sayles) to achieve this result.
