Two-Way Media LLC v. AT&T Inc. et al.
On March 20, 2013, a jury in San Antonio returned a verdict in favor of Two-Way Media LLC, a company based in Colorado, on patent claims asserted against several AT&T entities and its related regional carriers. The TWM patents concern audio and video streaming, and were asserted against AT&T’s U-verse television service (which employs Microsoft’s Mediaroom software). The jury found that AT&T infringed the patent claims under the doctrine of equivalents. The jury further found that AT&T had not proven the patent claims invalid, and awarded damages of $27.5 million. The HPC team representing Two-Way Media included Mike Heim, Les Payne, and Micah Howe. The HPC team worked with attorneys from Susman Godfrey (including Parker Folse and Max Tribble).
The case is Two-Way Media LLC v. AT&T Inc. et al., case no. 5:09-cv-00476 (W.D. Tex., San Antonio Division).
