Rambus, SK Hynix end appeal of antitrust case in California

Rambus and SK Hynix, which settled their patent litigation in June, ended a separate antitrust fight in a California state court where Rambus was appealing a jury verdict it lost.

An order dismissing the appeal was posted yesterday on the Web site of the California Court of Appeals in San Francisco. A request for voluntary dismissal had been filed July 3.

Rambus last year appealed its loss of a $3.95 billion trial over its allegation that Micron Technology and SK Hynix conspired to prevent its memory chips from becoming an industry standard. A jury in San Francisco rejected Rambus’s claims that Micron and SK Hynix were liable for colluding to manipulate prices of dynamic random access memory, or DRAM, chips.

Ken Nissly, a lawyer representing SK Hynix, said yesterday that the settlement of the antitrust case is part of the June deal between the companies to end a years-long patent dispute and license Rambus technology to the Icheon-based memory chip maker.

Carolyn Robinson, a spokeswoman for Sunnyvale, California-based Rambus, didn’t respond to a call for comment on the voluntary dismissal. The appeal against Boise, Idaho-based Micron is pending.
