New York federal court judge Jed Rakoff announced his verdict in the appeal of Nintendo's 3DS patent case against Tomita Technologies on Sunday. The judge found that the technology in question -- specifically, that "relating to displaying stereoscopic images on-screen for viewing with the naked eye, i.e., without utilizing glasses or other devices" -- performed differently in Nintendo's system than in Tomita's and did so in a manner which was not envisioned by the plaintiff's original 2008 patent. As such he ruled in favor of Nintendo, reversing the lower court's initial decision from 2013 and confirming the results of a 2015 retrial. What's more the decision invalidates Tomita's initial award of $30.2 million in damages.
