Universal Electronics Files Patent Infringement Action Against Universal Remote Control

Universal Remote Control (URC) reported that the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California granted its request for attorneys fees in a pending patent infringement action filed by Universal Electronics (UEI). This litigation began in March 2012 when UEI accused URC of infringing four of its patents. Over the course of the proceedings, which concluded with a jury trial and verdict in URC's favor on all issues tried, all of the claims that had been asserted against URC were dismissed on multiple grounds. The fourth patent, in addition to being declared unenforceable by the Court, was invalidated by the Patent Office in an Inter Partes review. The net result is that all four UEI patents have now been held invalid. On March 10, after briefing, the Court found in URC's favor and granted URC's fee request for those patent claims found exceptional, first finding that the litigation was motivated at least in part by UEI's desire for 'payback' for URC's successful competition in the marketplace.

Universal Remote Control, Inc. Announces Favorable Decision in Patent Infringement Litigation with Universal Electronics, Inc

Universal Remote Control, Inc. announced that a jury in the California Central District Court handed URC a complete victory in a pending patent infringement action started by Universal Electronics, Inc. over two years ago. This litigation began in March 2012 when UEI accused URC of infringing four of its patents. With the jury verdict, URC has now prevailed on each of the four patents. URC was successful in the early stages of the proceedings, where the Court determined in February 2013 that the asserted claims of one of the patents was invalid. The Court also decided in URC's favor on two other patents in March 2014 on summary judgment. On May 21, 2014, after a two-week trial, the jury found in URC's favor on all claims, including holding the asserted claims of the fourth patent invalid and not infringed. The jury also found a second patent (earlier held not infringed on summary judgment) invalid. In total, the asserted claims of three of the four patents-in-suit were dismissed on invalidity grounds. The jury lastly determined that UEI was guilty of patent misuse and unclean hands, which URC expects the Court to make final. URC plans to seek an award against UEI for its attorneys' fees and costs based upon these and other grounds.
