Apple and Optis Go Face to Face Over Patent Jury Trial Safety
Apple is demanding that Eastern District Chief Judge Rodney Gilstrap postpone a patent infringement trial until October, with backing from a UT epidemiologist who says COVID-19 would pose an “extraordinary risk” for participants and the surrounding community. Optis Wireless says Apple has continually tried to delay trial over its refusal to pay reasonable royalties on LTE patents, and that chances are the pandemic will be more dangerous in October, not less.
