Intel ordered to pay; plans to appeal

A Texan U.S. District Judge has denied Intel's motion for a new trial, writes Reuters in a report. Back in March 2021, VLSI .was awarded USD 1.5 billion and USD 675 million respectively for Intel's infringement of two patents that were once owned by NXP. A different jury and in a separate patent infringement lawsuit however, ruled in Intel's favour (in April 2021). Here, VLSI had sought USD 3.1 billion. Intel was "disappointed with the decision and intended to appeal", the report continues.
