An East Texas jury recently found Samsung infringed two imaging patents held by Imperium IP Holdings, awarding the company more than $7 million in damages.

Imperium filed suit against Samsung and several of its subsidiaries on June 9, 2014 in the U.S. District Court for Eastern Texas, Sherman Division.

Imperium alleged infringement of the following patents:

- U.S. Patent No. 6,271,884, entitled “Image Flicker Reduction with Fluorescent Lighting;”

- U.S. Patent No. 6,836,290, entitled “Combined Single-Ended and Differential Signaling Interface;” and

- U.S. Patent No. 7,092,029, entitled “Strobe Lighting System for Digital Images.”

Court records show Imperium also has a separate suit against Apple for infringement of the ‘884 patent.

On Feb. 8 Jurors found the Samsung infringed the ‘884 patent, awarding Imperium $4,890,772 in damages, according to the jury verdict.

No damages were awarded for the alleged infringement of patent ‘290; however, the jury did award Imperium $2,129,608.50 for infringement of the ‘209 patent.

The original complaint was filed through Fisch Sigler attorney Alan Fisch.
