Covington Secures Appellate Victory for Juniper Networks


WASHINGTON, DC, September 19, 2007 — Covington & Burling LLP has secured a major appellate victory before the Federal Circuit for its client, Juniper Networks, Inc.

The case concerned Toshiba Corporation’s claim that Juniper infringed four patents related to the transmission of data among network routers. The trial court entered a claim construction ruling favoring Juniper and Toshiba accepted an adverse judgment of non-infringement in an effort to secure broad appellate rights. In a seven-page, non-precedential opinion, the Federal Circuit accepted Covington’s argument and affirmed the district court’s claim construction ruling favoring Juniper in its entirety.

Richard Rainey, who argued the appeal for Juniper, led the intellectual property litigation team and briefed the appeal with Roderick McKelvie and Scott Weidenfeller.
