By Memorandum Opinion entered by The Honorable Richard G. Andrews in InterDigital Communications, Inc. v. ZTE Corp., Civil Action No. 13-009-RGA (D.Del., June 7, 2016), the Court granted Defendants’ motion seeking certification of partial final judgment, pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 54(b), as to jury’s finding of liability against Defendants for infringement of U.S. Patent Numbers 7,190,966 and 7,286,847 (collectively, “the power ramp-up patents”). In so ruling, the Court found that an entry of judgment as to patent infringement liability, when only a damages trial remains, is a final judgment for purposes of Rule 54(b). Id. at *4. The Court also concluded that, after evaluating the five factors set forth by the Third Circuit to assess whether there exists any just reason for delay, there was no just reason for delay. Id. at *4-6.
