ParkerVision Announces Markman Hearing In Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against Qualcomm

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ParkerVision, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRKR), a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications, announced today that U.S. District Judge Roy B. Dalton Jr. has established a schedule for upcoming hearings and other case deadlines in ParkerVision Inc. v. Qualcomm Inc., No. 3-2011-cv-00719, a patent infringement lawsuit filed by ParkerVision against San-Diego based Qualcomm, Inc. (NASDAQ: QCOM).

The patent claim construction hearing, also called a Markman hearing, is set for August 10, 2012, at which time the judge will be asked to issue rulings regarding the language and interpretation of the ParkerVision patents at issue in the case.  Markman hearings are considered a critical event in a patent lawsuit.  The upcoming Markman ruling will define the property rights for the technologies that ParkerVision has invented and has the right to exclusively practice. The court's Markman hearing decisions will drive and inform many aspects of the litigation.  The jury trial in this case is scheduled to begin on August 5, 2013.

"We are passionate about the technology that ParkerVision has developed, and we are committed to protecting our patented innovations from unauthorized use," stated Jeffrey L. Parker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ParkerVision. "We look forward to showing the court and jury how Qualcomm is using ParkerVision's technology despite the legal patent protections that we have expended a great deal of time and capital to secure. This firm timeline means that we will soon get our day in court."

In other key developments, the court denied as moot Qualcomm's motion for preliminary injunction against ParkerVision's patent prosecution counsel.  Instead, the Court approved a protective order, which all parties negotiated and agreed to, that enables ParkerVision's patent prosecution counsel to continue delivering legal advice and services to ParkerVision provided that they do not represent ParkerVision in the lawsuit or advise the company regarding Qualcomm's alleged infringement.
