Earlier this week, an appeals court threw out a $368 million jury award for VirnetX's patent infringement case against Apple (AAPL) .
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Court in Washington said erroneous instructions given to the jury "tainted" the verdict for the case. The court also said parts of the testimony from a VirnetX's expert should have been kept out of the case.
VirnetX patent claims tied to Apple's FaceTime video chat feature and VPN on Demand on iOS devices. The court ordered a new trial to determine whether FaceTime infringes on VirnetX's patents.
