Websense, Inc. Key Developments

Finjan Provides Update on Federal Circuit Ruling Legacy Symantec Corp., Websense, Inc., Sophos Inc. Case

Finjan Holdings, Inc. provided an update on the case Finjan, Inc. versus Symantec Corp., Websense, Inc., Sophos Inc. This patent infringement suit dates back to a legacy litigation filed on July 12, 2010, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware against Symantec Corp., Websense, Inc., Sophos Inc., et al. During this time, two of the five defendants settled; for the three remaining defendants, Websense, Inc., Sophos Inc., and Symantec Corp., the verdict resulted in a finding of invalidity of certain asserted claims of Finjan's patents, U.S. Patent Nos. 6,092,194 and 6,480,962, and non-infringement of same, against the three parties. Finjan's Appeal Brief was filed on December 10, 2013, and the Oral Argument was heard on September 9, 2014. The Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) issued a decision, affirming the District Court's prior ruling with no opinion, citing Federal Circuit Rule 36. Rule 36 findings by the Court do not provide any additional insight or context into the Court's decision in the case. This CAFC ruling was the most recent outcome in the process to reverse the lower Court's finding of invalidity on claims in the two patents. The two patents in question are not at issue in any of six currently pending cases in the Northern District of California, including three separate actions involving the three remaining parties in the appeal, noted previously.
