Back in 2021, when a federal jury in Texas ordered Apple to pay $300 million in royalties to non-practicing entity PanOptis, a downgraded penalty resulted from a retrial over damages relating to infringement of wireless technology patents.

Then, the American tech giant attempted to get a new trial against the wireless patent-holding firm since there are misconceptions in the evidence, testimony, and jury instructions. Now, the new retrial application has been rejected therefore, Apple must pay PanOptis the total sum of $300 million as damages for wireless patent infringement.

PanOptis and its parent firm Optis won a $506.2 million lawsuit against Apple for infringing on a series of 4G LTE patents. That was filed in August 2020, but a federal judge allowed a retrial in April 2021 due to substantial doubt about the verdict.

The amount was reduced to $300 million as a result, but Apple protested, claiming that there were various flaws with the evidence, testimony, jury instructions, and the amount of money given to Optis. As a result, Apple claimed that it was entitled to a third trial.

However, according to the latest information reaching us, reported by Reuters, Apple’s new trial application has now been rejected. It could have lowered the damages to zero, but Apple’s petitions for a fresh trial and ruling were denied by East Texas US District Judge Rodney Gilstrap.

Apple infringed on PanOptis’ 4G LTE patents with products such as iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches, according to PanOptis. The patents, according to Reuters, are critical to worldwide LTE wireless standards.

In a similar vein, the American tech giant is involved in another lawsuit with parent company Optis over the same alleged infringements in the UK. The case is set to be heard again in July 2022, with the likelihood that either Apple will be prohibited from selling iPhones in the UK or will choose not to do so.
