$4M Lawsuit Judgment Against Valve Upheld

The Esports Observer reports that a Federal Judge in Washington threw out a motion from Valve to nullify the $4 million verdict in a patent infringement lawsuit from controller maker SCUF over the Steam Controller. Word is an effort by SCUF to enhance the payout was also dismissed:
The Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive maker filed a post-trial motion asking the Western District Court of Washington in Seattle to nullify the verdict, but U.S. District Judge Thomas S. Zilly ruled Wednesday that the company failed to prove that there was insufficient evidence presented at trial because that evidence, according to the ruling, was straightforward and easy for the jury to understand. Zilly also denied a motion by SCUF, who was seeking enhanced damages.

Valve should have just paid the licensing fee, but fuck SCUF. Their patent on rear buttons is bogus and should never have been awarded.

Pretty egregious on Valve's part. It must sting to owe four million to a company for patent infringement on a discontinued product.
Actually makes me wonder if that's why they discontinued, to try and reduce that.

Can't blame SCUF for going after enhanced damages, they were in the right after all.
