Camtek wins Appeal Against Rudolph

 

 

The Federal Circuit Court of Appeals has cancelled a District Court ruling, following a jury decision, that Camtek infringed patents held by Rudolph, a German competitor (now August).

In the original ruling, Rudolph was awarded $8.7 million in damages and a permanent injunction against Camtek.

The Federal Circuit Court of Appeals has found that the District Court erred in the construction of a key claim term and vacated the finding of infringement, the damages award and the permanent injunction.  The case has been remanded to the District Court for a limited trial based on the corrected claim construction.

Equitable Disclosure: Although I’ve had nothing to do with the case in question, I have performed some opinion work for Camtek, which is an Israeli company, and have also drafted and prosecuted a number of patents for Amitek, a sister company.
