FaceTime Verdict Against Apple Tossed for Now

Posted by at 8:48 am on September 16, 2014

A federal court today threw out a guilty verdict levied against Apple in 2012 over patents related to its FaceTime application.

A company called VirnetX sued Apple, alleging FaceTime infringed on VirnetX’s intellectual property. VirnetX sought damages of $708 million, but the Tyler, Texas, jury awarded it $368 million in 2012. Today’s action sees the basic guilty verdict vacated based on some technicalities experienced in the original trial.

The appeals court believes Apple did in fact violate VirnetX’s patents, and sent the case back to trial for further examination.
