The U.S. Supreme Court last month rejected a Hyundai Motor Co. unit’s appeal of an $11.5 million award in a patent lawsuit over a means of creating customized printed proposals for prospective customers. The justices let stand a federal appeals court ruling that upheld the award in favor of Clear With Computers LLC. That company had sued Hyundai Motor America Inc. in the lawsuit.
Hyundai contended that faulty jury instructions given by a federal trial judge undermined the company’s bid to invalidate the Clear With Computers patent. According to Hyundai, similar electronic proposal systems were already available in the marketplace when the patent application was filed.
