Susman Godfrey LLP Wins $27.5 Million Verdict in Patent Infringement Suit
Against AT&T Inc.
SEATTLE, March 21, 2013
SEATTLE, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Susman Godfrey LLP won a $27.5 million
verdict yesterday on behalf of its client, Two-Way Media LLC, in a patent
infringement suit in San Antonio against AT&T Inc. related to the streaming of
audio and video content over the Internet.
"This was a very hard-fought case, and we are thrilled that the jury agreed
with our argument that AT&T's digital TV service, 'U-verse TV,' infringes the
patents held by Two-Way Media," said lead counsel Parker Folse, a partner in
the Seattle office of Susman Godfrey LLP.
Two-Way Media owns patents related to live streaming and recordkeeping
technology that is used for broadcasting audio and video over the Internet. In
April 2008, the company sued AT&T Inc., Akamai Technologies, Inc., and
Limelight Networks, Inc. for infringing three of those patents. Akamai and
Limelight previously settled with Two-Way Media in this matter.
The three patents concern various methods for controlling the routing of
real-time streams of audio and/or video information over communications
networks, and for recording detailed usage data by consumers. The jury agreed
with Two-Way Media's position that AT&T's digital U-verse TV services were
covered by Two-Way Media's patents.
Two-Way Media was represented by Parker Folse and by Max Tribble, Jr., a
partner in the firm's Houston office, along with Susman Godfrey partners
Rachel Black and Ian Crosby from the firm's Seattle office.
The case is Two-Way Media LLC vs. AT&T Inc. Et. Al. in the U.S. District Court
Western District of Texas No. 09-CV-00476-OLG.
