ITC Affirms Wolf Greenfield Victory

On June 14, 2012 the International Trade Commission issued a final ruling in favor of our client, MStar Semiconductor, Inc., in a case brought by Thomson Licensing. The Commission found no infringement by either MStar’s scaler chips, or the LCD products, sold by MStar’s customers, that incorporate those chips. The complainant, Thomson Licensing, had sought to exclude from importation a significant proportion of the LCD products imported into the United States. Our team of Michael Rader, Jerry Hrycyszyn, Eric Kaviar, and paralegal Claudia Butler, tried the case in October and secured a ruling of no infringement from Administrative Law Judge Robert Rogers, which the Commission then affirmed. Thomson Licensing was represented by one of the largest law firms in the United States.
