O’Melveny’s Win for Top Victory Electronics Noted in Law360’s How They Won It

May 29, 2013

Law360’s May 28, 2013, “How They Won It: O'Melveny Debunks Hitachi TV Patent Claims,” details O’Melveny & Myers’ role in the win for television maker Top Victory Electronics (Taiwan) Co. Ltd. (TPV) against patent infringement claims by Hitachi Consumer Electronics Co. Ltd. According the article, the court ruled in favor of TPV that it didn’t infringe on four of Hitachi’s patents, and it found two of them invalid. “In patent cases juries love human interest stories,” said O’Melveny Vice Chair Mark Samuels in the article. “Our argument, at the end of the day, was that Hitachi never held the keys to the television kingdom. That is something they only came up with later, after their business failed.”
