Show Me the Money: Quickly Find Court Damages Awards, Verdicts, Judgments, and Fines by Dollar Amount

Docket Alarm is excited to announce a new search feature that makes researching damages awards and jury verdicts fast and easy.

Researching dollar amounts in litigation is a common task, as parties often seek to understand their potential financial exposure or recovery by analyzing cases similar to their own. Previously, researching jury verdicts, damages, or other types of amounts in controversy was arduous. Researchers needed to either go through each case one-by-one or search for language that was often used in close proximity, such as the terms “damages” or “award.” Unfortunately, manually reviewing each document is extremely time consuming, and using too many shortcuts may result in overlooking relevant documents.

Docket Alarm has solved this problem.

SCOTUS Sides With Samsung

In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court ruledon Tuesday in favor of Samsung in their ongoing case against Apple over design patent damages. The Court’s decision reversed an earlier ruling by the Federal Circuit that awarded Apple $399 million in damages.

The central argument in the case was over the language of 35 U.S.C. §289, which stated that a defendant found infringing on a patented “article of manufacture” was “liable to the owner to the extent of his total profit.” See Samsung Electronics Co. v. Apple Inc., 580 U.S. ___ (2016).

The court held that the term “article of manufacture” should not necessarily be construed to mean only an end product sold to consumers, but could also be construed more broadly to mean infringing components of a product.
