Lonestar Inventions Patent Cases
Counsel for plaintiffs on a number of patent infringement actions brought by Lonestar Inventions against a series of defendants.

Some of the cases settled only after a favorable Markman order that was entered in the spring of 2009. Cumulative settlements exceeded $35,000,000. The list of parties with whom Lonestar settled included (among others): Analog Devices, Texas Instruments, Toshiba, Broadcom, Marvell, Advanced Micro Devices, Kodak, Freescale, Agere and Xilinx. The most recent settlements funded in mid-2009.
