Akamai Appeals Limelight Damage Reversal

4/25/09Follow @wroush

On Friday a judge in the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts overturned a February 2008 jury verdict that had ordered Tempe, AZ-based content distribution network Limelight Networks to pay Cambridge, MA-based Akamai Technologies $45 million in damages for patent infringement. Limelight successfully challenged the jury award based on new case law. Akamai immediately said it would appeal the decision.
