More on Qualcomm

Trying to reduce damages in a case involving Broadcom, Qualcomm Inc. asked the CAFC on 5 Aug 08 to restore its rights to two video patents the cellphone chip maker forfeited last year when a judge ruled that the company engaged in gross misconduct.

Money/CNN noted: very late in the court proceedings, Qualcomm admitted that it withheld internal documents that contradicted its earlier testimony. The company, in fact, had participated in the group.

Another "chutzpah award"-->

CAFC Judge Alan Lourie said Qualcomm had to know that its patents would be implicated by the technology working group, and he said Qualcomm's attorney deserved a "chutzpah award" for one of his legal arguments.
