The jury in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas found Google LLC’s Nest Hub products don’t infringe Profectus Technology patent. The lawsuit was related to a picture frame for displaying digital images. Profectus had sued Google last year for patent infringement regarding its Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max, which control smart-home functions, display pictures, and play music, among other things. The jury was instructed by U.S. District Judge Alan Albright it could find the patent invalid if its innovations had already been disclosed in earlier devices or publications. The jury found that the relevant parts of the patent were not valid. Profectus has earlier lost cases against Apple, Samsung.
