[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

In the patent litigation initiated by Triangle Software against Garmin International, in the Eastern District of Virginia, the Court has entered judgment in favor of Garmin. Triangle’s lawsuit targeted Garmin’s nüvi and zūmo product lines.

The judgment follows a partial jury verdict, issued on November 9, in which the jury found that three of the five patents asserted by Triangle in the litigation were not infringed by Garmin’s personal navigation devices with traffic functionality. The Court adopted the jury’s decision and further held that there was no infringement of Triangle’s remaining two patents. The decision is subject to appeal.

Garmin was represented by a team led by Nicholas Groombridge and David Ball of Paul Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison.
