Gardella Grace Obtains Verdict of more than $38 million in Favor of Client

By Gardella Grace | February 1, 2022

Gardella Grace P.A., led by Principal Cook Alciati, obtained a verdict of more than $38 million (plus an amount of prejudgment interest to be determined) in favor of its client Steuben Foods, Inc. following a week-long jury trial before Chief Judge Colm F. Connolly in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware.  The jury found all six asserted claims infringed and not invalid and awarded the full amount of damages requested.  The verdict comes after 10 years of litigation and post-grant proceedings wherein Greg Gardella worked with Mr. Alciati to defend the validity of the patents-in-suit in both reexamination and inter parties review proceedings.  Like all verdicts, this is subject to post-trial motions and appeal.
