Court Affirms Infringement in Marvell Patent Case But Reduces Damages

Marvell Technology Group Ltd. convinced a federal appeals court to reverse most of a $1.54 billion damage award to Carnegie Mellon University in a closely watched patent case. But the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed that Marvell infringed the two patents at issue in the case, which cover technology related to computer disk drives.
