Federal Circuit Affirms Pioneer Corporation ITC Victory on Appeal

Asia - Japan | North America - United States

Faegre Drinker successfully defended Pioneer Corporation (Pioneer) and one of its U.S. subsidiaries against infringement allegations by Broadcom with respect to six different patents asserted at the International Trade Commission (ITC).

In a Complaint first filed in May 2018, Broadcom sought to block the importation of Toyota vehicles based upon allegedly infringing microprocessors found within head units manufactured by Pioneer and other Tier 1 suppliers to Toyota. 

On April 30, 2020, the ITC affirmed the Administrative Law Judge’s prior finding from November 2019 rejecting Broadcom’s claims and finding no violation with respect to every asserted patent. The Federal Circuit affirmed the ITC’s ruling in a precedential opinion in March 2022.
