Qualcomm And Broadcom Settle Some Patent Claims

Each firm claimed infringement by the other of two patents. The case had been scheduled to go to trial March 5 in San Diego Federal Court.

Qualcomm and Broadcom announced Friday that they had agreed to dismiss litigation in a San Diego federal court over four patents, but that they will continue their legal fight over patents in other courts.

Each firm claimed infringement by the other of two patents. The litigation had been scheduled to go to trial March 5 in San Diego Federal Court.

The dismissal of the claims does not affect other infringement claims between Qualcomm and Broadcom that have been filed in federal courts in San Diego and Orange County, Calif.

The Broadcom suits that were dismissed involve patents that were among five that the firm had filed in May 2005. The patents related to Bluetooth technology implemented in cell phones and cellular systems.

The two Qualcomm suits that were dismissed had been filed in July 2005. Qualcomm said four jury trials addressing Qualcomm and Broadcom patents are still scheduled to occur this year.

In a separate development, Qualcomm said Friday that a Texas federal court had dismissed an antitrust complaint brought against Qualcomm and other cell phone providers by Golden Bridge Technology. Other targets of the complaint had included Ericsson, Lucent Technologies (now Lucent-Alcatel), Motorola, Nokia, NTT Docomo, and Panasonic.
