SSL Servs., LLC v. Citrix Sys., Inc., No. 13-1419 (Fed. Cir. 2014)Annotate this Case
SSL Services asserted that Citrix infringed claims contained the 796 patent and the 011 patent, related to multi-tier virtual private networks. The district court held a Markman hearing and construed the terms “intercepting” and “destination address,” and imposed a set step order requirement for the claim. A jury found that Citrix willfully infringed claims 2, 4, and 7 of the 011 Patent, and that those claims were not shown to be invalid, but that Citrix did not infringe claim 27 of the 796 Patent. The Federal Circuit affirmed in part, but vacated the district court’s denial of prevailing party status to SSL and remanded for an assessment of costs and fees.
