Universal Remote Control Receives Favorable Verdict in Patent Trial
June 03, 2014
A team from Analysis Group, led by Managing Principal John Jarosz and Vice President Daria Killebrew, was retained by counsel on behalf of Universal Remote Control, Inc. (URC) to evaluate the plaintiff's claimed damages in a patent infringement dispute and to provide expert testimony regarding lost profits, reasonable royalty damages, and price erosion. In March 2012, Universal Electronics Inc. (UEI) accused URC -- a technology company that develops and manufactures control and home automation products -- of infringing several UEI patents. Following a two-week trial in May 2014, a jury found in favor of URC on all remaining claims and affirmative defenses. No damages were awarded to UEI.
