Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), a leading developer and innovator of Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) and other advanced wireless technologies, today announced that a federal judge has vacated a jury's finding of willfulness in a patent infringement action brought by Broadcom against Qualcomm, and ruled that the awarding of enhanced damages and attorneys' fees against Qualcomm, which were based on a jury's findings of willful infringement, cannot stand.

Given a choice by Federal District Judge James V. Selna to either elect a new trial on all issues, or simply accept the jury's unenhanced liability and damage verdicts, Broadcom has chosen the latter option. A jury in August found that Qualcomm had infringed three patents owned by Broadcom and awarded $19.6 million in damages. The judge ruled on November 21, 2007 that recent case law clarified that the jury had received erroneous instructions regarding willful infringement. "We are pleased with the Court's ruling on willfulness and damages," said Alex H. Rogers, senior vice president, legal counsel, Qualcomm.
