In a Memorandum Opinion entered by The Honorable Joseph J. Farnan, Jr. on February 16, 2010, the United States District Court for the District of Delaware set forth its findings of fact and conclusions of law on the patent infringement claims of AU Optronics Corporation (“AUO”) against LG Display Co., Ltd. (“LGD”) which were tried by the parties during phase one of the bench trial held before Judge Farnan in June 2009.  The Opinion also sets forth the Court’s claim construction of the disputed terms in the asserted patents and its analysis concerning the infringement claims asserted by AUO against LG, and the invalidity defense asserted by LG.

Ultimately, the Court concludes that (1) AUO established by a preponderance of the evidence that LGD literally infringes the patents asserted by AUO in the action, and (2) LGD did not establish by clear and convincing evidence that the patents asserted by AUO in the action are invalid.  A complete copy of the Opinion is attached.
