A federal jury rules against Gigamon’s assertion of patent infringement while finding all patent-related claims invalid

On Friday, April 23, 2021, a federal jury of the US District Court, Eastern District of Texas, delivered its verdict regarding Gigamon’s claims of APCON Inc.’s infringement on certain specified network technology patents. Gigamon’s infringement assertions were denied when the jury unanimously ruled that not only were allegations of APCON’s infringement invalid, but all claims related to five network data management patents at issue were invalid as well.

The ruling followed a six-day, in-person trial and was delivered after only two hours of jury deliberations.

“APCON was confident that it was not infringing on any of Gigamon’s patents and we are extremely pleased that the jurors agreed we do not infringe.  We also presented numerous key pieces of prior art, and we are also pleased that the jury found that Gigamon’s patent claims are invalid. I also want to thank my legal team for an excellent job in defending our position.”
