Alston & Bird Secures Jury Verdict Defeating Claims of Patent Infringement Against Nokia

Alston & Bird successfully defended Nokia of America Corp. against allegations that its router products infringed four patents owned by Smart Path Communications.  On April 5, an Eastern District of Texas jury cleared Nokia of all claims of infringement, finding one patent not infringed, one patent invalid, and one patent invalid and not infringed. The Court held a fourth asserted patent not infringed and granted summary judgment prior to the trial. The result is that Nokia was found not liable on all four asserted patents.

Nokia was represented by an Alston & Bird team led by partners John Haynes, David Frist, Tom Davison, and Michael Deane, counsel Darlena Subashi, associates Sloane Kyrazis and Erin Beaton (Intellectual Property).

Co-counsel included Deron Dacus of The Dacus Firm.
