The COVID-19 pandemic isn’t stopping U.S. District Judge Henry Morgan of the Eastern District of Virginia from conducting a bench trial in a complex patent infringement case.

Centripetal Networks v. Cisco Systems formally got underway Wednesday via Zoom conference, beginning with a technology tutorial. Opening statements are scheduled to kick off Thursday in the case, in which startup Centripetal is seeking hundreds of millions in damages over cybersecurity patents. Although the court is videoconferencing the attorneys and witnesses by Zoom, the public is limited to audio-only telephone access.
