A district court’s decision denying awards of attorney fees incurred by several mobile device and digital camera makers in successfully defending against patent infringement claims by Honeywell International Inc. has been vacated and remanded by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. The district court was directed to reconsider whether the case was “exceptional” under the new standard for 35 U.S.C. §285 recently set by the U.S. Supreme Court in the Highmark and Octane Fitness cases (Honeywell International Inc. v. Nokia Corporation, September 11, 2015, Prost, S.).

A full summary of this case has been published on Kluwer IP Law.
