MLC Intellectual Property LLC v. BTG International, Inc. (Superior Court of the State of California County of Santa Clara)

BTG, a British company, was sued by an inventor for breach of contract for failure to pay royalties in state court by an inventor claiming royalties under patents covering nonvolatile memory devices. The dispute turned on the interpretation of the license term. After a two­day motion in limine hearing in which the court ruled for BTG on all of the major issues, the case settled on the eve of trial for a nominal sum.
