SAN FRANCISCO—A jury in Santa Clara, Calif., rejected misappropriation of trade secrets allegations against Marvell Technology Group Ltd. in a suit brought by Jasmine Networks Inc. nearly 10 years ago, Marvell said Monday (Nov. 29).
The Santa Clara County Superior Court jury unanimously found that Marvell did not use or acquire any Jasmine trade secrets and did not violate any nondisclosure agreements, Marvell (Santa Clara) said.
"We have always maintained that the claims asserted by Jasmine were completely unfounded, baseless, and untrue and therefore we fought for almost a decade to defend our integrity and reputation," said Sehat Sutardja, chairman, president and CEO of Marvel. "The jury's verdict is a total vindication of Marvell's position."
