Federal Jury Decides in Favor of Aerohive in Patent Infringement Dispute
On January 6, 2017, following a week-long trial, a federal jury returned a verdict that Aerohive Networks did not infringe any asserted claims of patent holder Chrimar Systems. Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati represented Aerohive at trial and throughout the litigation.
Chrimar sued Aerohive in July 2015 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. At trial, Chrimar alleged that Aerohive's wireless access points and other networking equipment infringed numerous claims from four asserted patents. The jury cleared Aerohive of all claims.
The WSGR team representing Aerohive in the matter included partner Ryan R. Smith and associate Mary Procaccio-Flowers, with paralegal support from Jonathan Rich, Antonio Ramos, and Marwa Elkady, as well as additional support from Kathie Ramos and Meghan Samora.
