Item 8.01.    Other Events.
2013 ZTE Delaware District Court Proceeding

On November 3, 2017, the Court of Appeals for the U.S. Federal Circuit (the "Federal Circuit") issued its decision affirming the October 2014 Delaware District Court judgment finding that two of InterDigital’s patents, U.S. Patent Nos. 7,190,966 and 7,286,847 (the “power ramp-up patents”), are not invalid and are infringed by ZTE 3G and 4G cellular devices. 

The Delaware District Court proceeding was initiated by InterDigital against ZTE in January 2013, on the same date InterDigital filed a complaint with the United States International Trade Commission (proceeding no. 337-TA-868) alleging infringement by ZTE of the power ramp-up patents, among other patents.  The Delaware District Court trial addressing infringement and validity of the power ramp-up patents was held in October 2014, with the jury delivering a unanimous verdict in favor of InterDigital, and the court subsequently entered judgment for InterDigital.  ZTE filed its notice of appeal with the Federal Circuit regarding the Delaware District Court judgment as to the power ramp-up patents in July 2016.
