Mini-Trial July 26 2018 Finjan Vs Juniper Networks

|Includes: Finjan Holdings, Inc. (FNJN), JNPR, SYMC
Summary

A mini-trial is really not a trial at all. Rather, it is a settlement process in which the parties present highly summarized versions of their respective cases to a panel.

of officials who represent each party (plus a “neutral” official) and who have authority to settle the dispute.

Finjan and Juniper Networks are quickly going remedy the Patent Infringement Case .

Symantec recent settlement to Finjan for the same patent infringement was $65 million and $45 million in future licensing. March 2018.

Finjan’s Case against Juniper Networks mirrors the same patent claims against Symantec : U.S. Patent Nos. 6,154,844, 6,804,780, 7,647,633, 7,613,926, 8,141,154, 8,677,494, 7,975,305, and 8,225,408, through the manufacture, use, sale, importation, and/or offer for sale of its products and services.

Finjan trading at 1.5x current cash value,  this Juniper Networks settlement opportunity, I expect Finjan to have another significant move.

Juniper Networks original court case with Finjan was expected to be in late 2019, with this recent change to a mini trial, I sense that Juniper would like to settle.
