In a brief filed with the Federal Circuit seeking to overturn a $290 million patent infringement judgment entered against Microsoft, the company's lawyers take aim at Texas federal Judge Leonard Davis, providing a long list of his alleged failures and missteps at trial. They also address Davis' finding that Microsoft's lead counsel made "improper arguments" when he compared Canadian company i4i to a bank seeking a bailout. Partly because of those arguments, Davis enhanced the jury's award to i4i by $40 million.
