US Senior District Court Judge Rudi Brewster, who is handling a legal appeal of the jury trial's outcome, issued a written ruling in favour of Microsoft and against Lucent, according to court documents."

"In his ruling, Brewster concluded that the US software giant did not infringe on one of the patents and that Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft would need to join Alcatel-Lucent's infringement suit for it to be valid in court."
