Micron Technology, Inc. v. United Microelectronics Corporation, et al. (Northern District of California)
Dan Johnson Law Group represents United Microelectronics Corporation (UMC), one of the world’s leading semiconductor foundries, headquartered in Taiwan. On December 5, 2017, UMC was sued by Micron Technologies in the Northern District of California for allegedly misappropriating trade secrets relating to DRAM technology. In February 2018, Mr. Johnson’s team filed a motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction, asserting that Micron’s causes of action relate only to activities that took place in Taiwan, and the Court lacks jurisdiction in California. Judge Jeffrey S. White entered an order on April 23 finding that Micron’s initial allegations and pleadings had failed to establish a prima facie basis for jurisdiction and allowed limited jurisdictional discovery and supplemental briefing. The case was transferred to Judge Maxine M. Chesney on June 13, 2018 after Judge White recused himself. The Court set a new hearing on the motion to dismiss for September 21, 2018. UMC is represented in this matter by Dan Johnson, Mario Moore, and Robert Litts.
