NOVEMBER 2003; RICHMOND, VIRGINIA – In November, 2003, a jury awarded
damages to Imagexpo L.L.C., a subsidiary of SPX Corporation, in a patent infringement
suit against Microsoft Corporation. Digital Evidence Group, LLC provided trial consulting
services to Imagexpo and its counsel Howrey.
The jury awarded SPX’s Imagexpo $62.3 million in compensatory damages and found
that Microsoft willfully infringed the patent. The parties then settled the dispute for $60
million.
The litigation related to a complaint that SPX’s Imagexpo filed in October 2002 against
Microsoft alleging that Imagexpo’s patent related to real-time conferencing was infringed
by the NetMeeting Whiteboard feature of various of Microsoft’s products. The case was
heard in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Richmond
Division.
