Qualcomm suit dismissed

Qualcomm has won a temporary victory in its legal battles with Nokia, Reuters reports. The United States' International Trade Commission has thrown out one lawsuit brought by Nokia, which would have seen Qualcomm's chips barred from being sold in the States on the basis that they violate several of the former company's patents. The judge presiding over the case was first presented with a dismissal motion on October 18th, but Nokia fought for a review, which has only just been concluded.

The ITC's reason for dismissal has been given as pending arbitration. Qualcomm counsel Alex Rogers explains that Nokia was supposed to have been blocked from filing any patent lawsuits in the US, because arbitration is already in progress in Los Angeles. This did not stop the company however, and Qualcomm's troubles are not over, as over a dozen lawsuits are awaiting resolution on three different continents.
