O’Melveny Presents on Hynix Case to the Korea In-house Lawyer ForumJanuary 31, 2012
The presentation was entitled “Winning Strategies in U.S. Jury Trials: Lessons from Hynix Victory Over Rambus in Antitrust/IP Trial.”
Kim Eun Tae, Vice President and Head of IP at Hynix Semiconductor also spoke on the panel.
The audience consisted of nearly 100 in-house lawyers working in Seoul for Korea-based corporations or other international companies.
O’Melveny represented Hynix Semiconductor Inc. in Rambus Inc. v. Micron Technology Inc., the antitrust case filed against Micron and Hynix by Rambus in connection with Rambus’ RDRAM proprietary memory technology. Rambus claimed that Hynix and co-defendant Micron Technology conspired to prevent RDRAM from becoming the standard computer memory technology in most all computers worldwide, and claimed US$3.95 billion in antitrust damages, which under California law arguably would have been automatically trebled to US$11.9 billion. O’Melveny achieved a critical victory for Hynix on November 16, 2011 when a San Francisco jury delivered a verdict in Hynix’s favor.
O’Melveny’s Korea practice task force of partner Joe Kim (LA) and counsel Youngwook Shin (LA) coordinated this program and hosted the event and joined in the presentation.
