Trial Win for Zynga Earns Litigators of the Week Recognition

1 minute read | October.27.2023

  • American Lawyer recognized our IP litigation team in its Litigator of the Week feature for a complete trial win for Zynga in a patent trial in the Western District of Texas. The team earned runner-up honors for the outcome.
  • A jury on Oct. 20 sided with Zynga in a patent case brought by IGT, which alleged Zynga’s popular “Game of Thrones,” “Hit it Rich” and “Black Diamond Casino” games infringed its patent on mobile gaming technology.
  • The jury found the patent did not infringe, and that the patent was invalid based on obviousness.
  • IGT initially sued two years ago over six patents, but our team successfully removed five of the patents from the litigation prior to trial.

The Orrick trial team included partners Clem Roberts, Alyssa Caridis, Bas de Blank and Will Stute, and associates Sarah Mullins and Will Melehani.
