Marshall jury favors defendants on damages in IP case

Competition Economics Director Brett Reed was retained on behalf of co-defendant Dell's counsel, Wilson, Sonsini, Goodrich & Rosati, in the matter of Mass Multiples v. Ergotron, CDW, Tech Data, and Dell Computer. Mr. Reed testified in the patent case in Marshall, Texas and (1) responded to claims of lost profits asserted by Mass Multiples; (2) rebutted the alternative Reasonable Royalty claims that Mass Multiples presented to the jury; and (3) testified as to the reasonable royalties due Dell Computer related to a counterclaim for infringement of a Dell patent. As reported by a well-known blog that follows the Eastern District of Texas, Mass Multiples “asked the jury for $64 million and got $1.5 million from the manufacturer and $500,000 from each of three resellers, and one of the defendant resellers asked for and got $120,000 on their countersuit patent.”
