Morgan Chu, Alan Albright and William Lee Irell & Manella’s Morgan Chu, left, and WilmerHale’s William Lee, right, are litigating VLSI v. Intel before Judge Alan Albright, center.

The following is adapted from Scott Graham’s Skilled in the Art IP newsletter. This post is about VLSI Technology v.

Intel says it doesn’t infringe either patent, and that one of them is invalid.

Any time a witness opens a door to a subject, there’s always the possibility an opponent will drive a truck through it on cross-examination or redirect. What stands out about the VLSI-Intel trial is how fast lawyers on both sides can hop in the driver’s seat and run someone over.
