After three years of litigation and a two-week trial, an Arizona federal jury found last week that Taiwan Union Technology Corp. infringed two patents owned by Isola USA Corp. for resins used to make circuit boards. The jury also found that the infringement of one of the patents was willful and rejected Taiwan Union’s arguments that both patents are invalid. Isola USA was awarded $11.5 million in damages.

A Houston-based StoneTurn team, led by Paul Benson, worked with DLA Piper out of San Diego and Phoenix for Isola USA, the leading manufacturer of high performance laminate product materials used to fabricate circuit boards assembled into high-end computers, servers, switches, routers and other similar products.
