Hyundai Rejected by Court on $11.5 Million Patent Award

Nov. 12 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Supreme Court turned away a Hyundai Motor Co. unit’s appeal of an $11.5 million award in a patent lawsuit over a means of creating customized printed proposals for prospective customers.

The justices today let stand a federal appeals court ruling that upheld the award, won by Clear With Computers LLC against Hyundai Motor America Inc.

Hyundai contended that faulty jury instructions given by a federal trial judge undermined the company’s bid to invalidate the Clear With Computers patent. Hyundai said similar electronic-proposal systems were already available in the marketplace when the patent application was filed.

The case is Hyundai v. Clear With Computers, 13-296.
