ParkerVision Wins Favorable Markman Order in Patent Infringement Action Against Qualcomm
ParkerVision, Inc. (Nasdaq: PRKR) announced today that on February 20, 2013, the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida issued its patent claim construction ruling, or "Markman Order", in the ongoing patent infringement action between ParkerVision and Qualcomm, Inc (NYSE: QCOM).
In a Markman Order, the presiding district court in a patent infringement case sets out the meaning of certain disputed patent claim language present in the patents in suit. This court interpretation is then applied during the action in the determinations of infringement and validity. The Markman Order can be a significant factor in the progress and outcome of patent infringement litigation.
In the recently issued Markman Order, the Court adopted ParkerVision's position as to the proper interpretation of most of the key terms in dispute in the litigation.
