McKool Smith principal Ted Stevenson has been named “Litigator of the Week” by Texas Lawyer for his role in securing a $15 million patent infringement verdict on behalf of Summit 6 against Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. and Samsung Telecommunications America, Inc.
The verdict was handed down on April 5, 2013 after a six-day jury trial before Judge Reed O'Connor in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas in Dallas. The jury found that Samsung infringed Summit 6’s patented media uploading technology, U.S. Patent No. 7,765,482, which covers software that automatically processes digital photos before they are transmitted over a network by client devices, such as cell phones. Summit 6 accused Samsung phones that support MMS photo messaging of infringement.
