Jury Verdict in LadaTech v. Illumina

Earlier this week, a jury reached a decision in the longstanding dispute between LadaTech LLC and Illumina Inc, finding that Illumina’s DNA sequencing products infringe LadaTech’s genome technology patent. The case has been pending since August 2009 and began a week-long jury trial on February 21. The jury returned a verdict on the same day that the trial ended, finding direct infringement, infringement by the doctrine of equivalents, indirect infringement by inducement, and that the patents are valid. Damages are bifurcated and have not yet been determined.
