Hearing a dispute earlier this week between LG Electroncis and US wireless technologies company InterDigital, the Court essentially accepted LG’s argument that a dispute between the Korean electronics company and InterDigital could be resolved through arbitration. The Court’s ruling overturned an earlier Federal Circuit Court decision.
The suit, commenced in 2011 when InterDigital filed suit against LG Electronics for patent fees. That suit was heard by the US International Trade Commission (ITC). The ITC ruled in favor of LG Electronics, stating that the case must be resolved through arbitration.
