CompX Jury Verdict Affirmed

On August 16, 2010 a federal judge rejected Humanscale Corp.’s post-trial attempts to overturn a jury verdict against it in its battle with CompX International Inc. The case involves keyboard support systems patents. In February, a jury found that Humanscale’s products infringed CompX’s patents and awarded CompX about $19 million in past damages. The jury also determined that Humanscale should pay CompX a reasonable royalty rate of 6 percent of its sales of the infringing products from Jan. 1, 2010, until the patents expired on June 13.  The case is Humanscale Corp. v. CompX International Inc. et al.
CompX International Inc. is represented by Banner & Witcoff.
