A federal trial court erroneously concluded that patent defendant Suunto Oy lacked minimum contacts with the State of Delaware to support the assertion of specific personal jurisdiction in a patent infringement suit filed by Polar Electro Oy, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has ruled. The judgment of the district court was vacated and the case was remanded so the district court could determine whether personal jurisdiction would be reasonable and fair (Polar Electro Oy v. Suunto Oy, July 20, 2016, Lourie, A.).
