QUALCOMM Dismisses Remaining Cases Against Broadcom

QUALCOMM agreed to dismiss all remaining cases initiated by QUALCOMM and awaiting trial against Broadcom including QUALCOMM 's claims of patent infringement and trade secret misappropriation in San Diego.

In turn, Broadcom dismissed its counterclaims against QUALCOMM in those San Diego cases. Broadcom's claims of patent infringement against Qualcomm in U.S. District Court in Santa Ana, Calif. and in the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) in Washington, D.C., and Broadcom's antitrust claim against QUALCOMM, which is on appeal in the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, are not affected by the dismissals in San Diego, and will continue forward.
