Marvell Says Jury Sides With It in Patent Infringement Case

Named a defendant, along with several other information technology companies, in a patent infringement lawsuit first brought in June 2010 , Marvell Semiconductor (NASDAQ: MRVL  ) today announced that a jury in Marshall, Texas, found it did not infringe on patents owned by Lake Cherokee Hard Drive Technologies.

The suit asserted that Marvell and six other defendants infringed on two patents owned by Lake Cherokee relating to read channel technology, according to documents (link opens in PDF) filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division. In its statement, Marvell said the patented technologies are not used in its chips, and the jury agreed.
