Thomas & Thomas Court Reporters Provides Trial Presentation Services for Retrial of Record-Breaking Patent Case in Norfolk, VA

SERVICES:  Trial Presentation Services, Trial Technician, and PowerPoint Creation

CASE CAPTION:  CENTRIPETAL NETWORKS, INC., Plaintiff, v. CISCO SYSTEMS, INC., Defendant.; Civil Action No. 2:18cv94

CASE TYPE:  Rule 63 retrial


LOCATION:  Norfolk, VA

JUDGE:  U.S. District Judge Elizabeth W. Hanes

LAW FIRMS:  Kramer Levin (Plaintiff) and Duane Morris (Defendant)

OVERVIEW:  Provided trial technician to display exhibits and PowerPoints at the trial.  Worked with tutorialist expert and client to fine-tune PowerPoint slides.  Used OnCue to create callouts and highlights of exhibits for use in PowerPoint.

UNIQUE ASPECT OF TRIAL:  The background of this case is unique in and of itself.  In 2020, Judge Morgan found that Cisco owed Centripetal $1.9B for patent infringement.  Just before issuing said finding, Judge Morgan informed the parties he had learned that his wife had just under $5,000 in Cisco stock.  On appeal, Cisco argued and won that the judgement should be vacated due to the Cisco stock.  The $1.9B was the largest patent infringement verdict in US history.

At the retrial, the unique aspect was definitely the limited amount of evidence presented.  Because this was being tried under Rule 63, each party only presented a tutorialist on the technology and then did closing arguments.  Initially, there were going to be several additional witnesses; however, those witnesses were scratched at the last second.  As noted above, this was a new judge,  but Judge Hanes did a great job with the technology and facts of this case.  She was prepared and attentive throughout the trial.

RESULT:  This was a bench trial and no Order has been issued.  This blog will be updated once an Order is issued.
