Comments Off on Samsung Loses Bid to Freeze Microsoft’s US Lawsuit Over Royalties 7

A US judge has rejected Samsung Electronics Co Ltd’s bid to put Microsoft Corp’s lawsuit over smartphone patent royalties on hold while the South Korean company pursues an arbitration proceeding in Hong Kong.

In a brief order, US District Judge Jed Rakoff in New York said the lawsuit would proceed despite the arbitration. Rakoff said he would explain his reasoning in a subsequent opinion.

Microsoft sued Samsung in August, accusing it of breaching a collaboration agreement by initially refusing to make royalty payments after the US company announced its intention to acquire Nokia’s handset business in September 2013. Original post at ET Telecom
