In April 2013, The BERO Group represented the defendants Imation Corporation, et al. in a patent infringement case in the Western District of Wisconsin. Although the jury found infringement of both patents at issue, the damages phase of the bifurcated trial was not held because the Court excluded the testimony of Toshiba’s damage expert.
In March 2013, Rick Bero testified at trial on behalf of defendant Systems, Inc. in a design patent infringement case in the Eastern District of Wisconsin. The jury found that certain accused models infringed the patent at issue and awarded royalty damages using Mr. Bero’s royalty rate.
In February 2013, Rick Bero testified at trial on behalf of defendant Emerson Electric in a patent infringement case in the Eastern District of Missouri. The jury found infringement and awarded royalty damages consistent with Mr. Bero’s royalty rate.
