Apple Denied Bid for Rehearing in VirnetX Patent Case by US Appeals Court

Apple had urged all of the judges sitting on the court to reconsider the split decision

Highlights
  • Apple requested the court to reconsider its decision
  • Apple iPhones allegedly infringed VirnetX Holding patents
  • US Court of Appeals declined to reconsider the decision

A US appeals court on Monday denied a request by Apple that it reconsider a decision upholding a finding Apple iPhones infringed VirnetX Holding patents relating to secure communications technology.

The US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit declined to reconsider a split decision it issued on November 22 in the long-running litigation.

In the November ruling, a three-judge panel of the court voided a jury's calculation that Apple should pay $503 million for infringing VirnetX patents.

But in a partial victory for VirnetX, the Federal Circuit left in place a Texas jury's finding that some versions of the iPhone infringed two VirnetX patents, setting the stage for another trial.

Apple had urged all of the judges sitting on the court to reconsider that part of the three-judge panel's decision.
