Jury Adopts Analysis Group Principal Robert Vigil’s Damages Assessment in Patent Dispute

November 30, 2023

Analysis Group was retained by Buchalter on behalf of WhiteWater West Industries, a water ride manufacturer and the defendant in a patent litigation brought by a competitor, ProSlide Technology. ProSlide alleged that WhiteWater had infringed several of its patents by using certain water slide features in its water rides.

An Analysis Group team led by Vice President Della Cummings supported Principal Robert Vigil, who prepared an expert report and testified at deposition and trial. Dr. Vigil assessed reasonable royalty damages for WhiteWater’s alleged infringement of the at-issue patents.

Following a federal jury trial, WhiteWater was found to have infringed two of ProSlide’s patents. The jury awarded $985,752 in damages to ProSlide, the exact amount calculated by Dr. Vigil.
