Professor Sohi developed technology that was ultimately patented by WARF using money he received from Intel. Last month, Judge Barbara Crabb found that the funding agreement was ambiguous, but that e-mails revealed that the money was an unrestricted gift and carried with it no obligation to license or assign any inventions to Intel.
Trial was scheduled to begin today. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
At issue is the 5,781,752. A copy of WARF's original complaint is here.
