StoneTurn Success Story: BU Awarded $13.7M in Patent Royalties

StoneTurn’s client Boston University was recently awarded $13.7 million in patent royalties by a jury in Boston, Massachusetts, after three years of litigation and nearly three weeks of trial related to infringement of a Blue LED light microchip patent infringed by three Taiwanese LED light chip and package manufacturers: Epistar, Everlight and Lite-On.

Alan Ratliff testified on the matter. The core team working with lead counsel, Shore Chan DePumpo, and Boston University was led by Paul Benson, Adam Gordon, Tiffany Lewis and Melissa Haley, with assistance from Jim Barolak, Kris Buchan, Robert Wright and Linda Calles. Other professionals in StoneTurn’s office provided additional support on the matter.
