Apple Promptly Calls Out ‘Patent Troll’ After Trial Win

Updated on

Apple Inc., barred from calling its opponent a “patent troll” during a trial, did exactly that less than an hour after jurors found in favor of the iPhone-maker and rejected claims for $93.7 million in damages.

GPNE Corp. claimed as many as nine Apple products, including the iPhone5, the iPad3 and iPad Mini, infringe its patents covering wireless data communication in pagers. The federal jury in San Jose, California, arrived at its decision yesterday, in its second day of deliberations.
