About the Venue Ruling

Judge Davis' ruling is based on the recommendation from Magistrate Judge James R. Klindt in January 2018. Judge Klindt's recommendations were based on his findings in this case where Apple had filed a motion to dismiss the case for Improper Venue in July 2017 while Qualcomm had filed a motion in July 2017 to transfer the case to Court in the Southern District of California. Judge Klindt had recommended the denial of both Apple's claim to dismiss the lawsuit and Qualcomm's motion transfer the case to Court in the Southern District of California. He felt that the Middle District of Florida was a proper and convenient venue to continue with ParkerVision's patent infringement lawsuit against both the tech giants.

Out of the two tech giants, only Qualcomm has filed an objection to Judge Klindt's recommendations. The Federal Court had the option to accept, reject, or modify in whole or in part the findings or recommendations made by Judge Klindt.

Commenting on Judge Davis's ruling, Jeffrey Parker, CEO of ParkerVision, said:

"We are pleased that Judge Davis has agreed with ParkerVision that the Middle District of Florida is the proper venue for this case. We anticipate the case can now move expeditiously toward a Markman hearing, and we look forward to the court's guidance on claim construction."


ParkerVision had filed lawsuit in December 2015 against Apple, Samsung, LG, and Qualcomm for allegedly infringing upon four wireless networking patents. ParkerVision had alleged that devices manufactured by Apple, Samsung, and LG infringed on ParkerVision's Patents. At the same time the Company also filed a complaint with the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) alleging that several companies are unlawfully importing and selling products which infringe on the Company's four US patents. Samsung and LG settled the case and were removed as defendants from the case in August 2016 and July 2017 respectively. Only Qualcomm and Apple continued as defendants in the case.

In March 2017, ParkerVision filed a motion to terminate the ITC Investigation after a ruling by the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) disallowed key factual evidence in the Company's ITC proceedings. The termination of ITC investigation allowed ParkerVision to appeal against the stay on the proceedings in two US district court cases against Qualcomm and did not impact its case against Apple which the Company had filed for infringement of German patents in Germany. ParkerVision expanded the case against Apple in the German infringement case to include Apple's products like iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. In May 2017, the Court of the Middle District of Florida agreed to ParkerVision's request and lifted the stay and allowed the reopening of the patent infringement case against Apple and Qualcomm. Following this Apple had filed the motion to dismiss the case and Qualcomm has filed a motion for change of venue.
