WASHINGTON - eTradeWire -- On July 10, 2019, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, Washington DC, heard oral argument regarding the appeal of the patent infringement suit won by Johnstech International Corp. against JF Microtechnology SDN BHD, Malaysia.  A California federal court awarded Johnstech $1.5 million in damages following a September 2016 jury verdict.[1]  A ruling from the appellate court is expected within the next 2-3 months. 2

David Johnson, CEO/President of Johnstech International said: "I feel very good about the legal system in the United States.  We're the only country in the world that allows a jury trial to decide infringement of patents.  Johnstech spends millions of dollars inventing and developing new semiconductor test solutions for both package and wafer probe for automotive, industrial, consumer and IoT.  We have developed the latest test solutions for 5G, Base Station, Infrastructure, handsets and Automotive Radar. Protecting this investment is critical to our future success. I am very confident that the U.S. federal appeals court will uphold our $1.5 million jury award. Johnstech continues to pursue an additional $600,000 in damages against JF Microtechnology within this same Federal Circuit appeal."
