A Jury Returns Verdict in Favor of Masimo Corporation in Patent Infringement Suit Against Philips Electronics North America Corporation and Philips Medizin Systeme Böblingen GmbH
Oct 2 14
As previously reported, on February 3, 2009, Masimo Corporation (company) filed a patent infringement suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware against Philips Electronics North America Corporation and Philips Medizin Systeme Böblingen GmbH (collectively, Philips) related to Philips's FAST pulse oximetry technology and certain of Philips' patient monitors. Philips subsequently filed patent infringement, antitrust, and other counterclaims against the company. In mid-September 2014, the parties began a jury trial with respect to two of the patents asserted by the company and one of the patents asserted by Philips, these patents having been selected by the parties to be tried first. On October 1, 2014, a jury returned a verdict in favor of the company with respect to the two patents asserted by the company in this first phase and awarded damages of $466.8 million to the company. The jury found that the company did not infringe the Philips patent tried in the first phase.
