A favorable decision has been handed to ParkerVision, Inc. from a federal court judge in its patent infringement suit against Qualcomm Inc. and Apple Inc. For those of you who are unaware, ParkerVision is a developer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications.

The decision was given on March 8, 2018 by Judge Brian Davis of the Federal Court in the Middle District of Florida. Judge Davis denied Qualcomm’s motion to transfer to the Southern District of California and denied Apple’s motion to dismiss for improper venue pertaining to ParkerVision’s patent infringement suit against Qualcomm and Apple (Case No. 3:15-cv-1477).

“We are pleased that Judge Davis has agreed with ParkerVision that the Middle District of Florida is the proper venue for this case. We anticipate the case can now move expeditiously toward a Markman hearing, and we look forward to the court’s guidance on claim construction,” said ParkerVision CEO Jeffrey Parker.
