Judge rules for Samsung in patent suit with NvidiaA U.S. trade judge said Nvidia infringed Samsung Electronics patents, offering another win for the Korean company in a running legal battle between the electronics companies.
The findings against chip-maker Nvidia by a judge at the U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington are subject to review by the full agency, which can block products from entering U.S. markets.
The judge determined there had been a violation of three patents, and a public version of the determination will be released later, according to a release posted by the agency on its website.
“We are disappointed,” Hector Marinez, a spokesman for Nvidia, said in an emailed statement. “We look forward to seeking review by the full ITC which will decide this case several months from now.”
Danielle Meister Cohen, a spokeswoman for Samsung, didn’t immediately offer a comment.
Nvidia dropped as much as 27 cents to $32.66 in after-hours trading. Bloomberg
