Xilinx obtains Federal Circuit decisions affirming dismissal under Alice and setting personal jurisdiction precedent
Clients Xilinx, Inc.
Jones Day represents Xilinx, Inc. in multiple venues against patent infringement assertions relating to integrated circuit testing technology. In District Court, Xilinx successfully obtained the transfer of an infringement action from the District of Delaware to the Northern District of California and subsequent dismissal of the transferred case after the District Court found that the patent claims at issue were not patent-eligible. At the Federal Circuit, Xilinx obtained a precedential opinion reversing the District Court's dismissal of Xilinx's parallel declaratory judgment complaint for lack of personal jurisdiction in the Northern District of California and a judgment affirming the District Court's patent ineligibility ruling. We are also representing Xilinx before the PTAB in an IPR challenging the validity of the patents.
