Summary:
Ariba Inc. said Thursday it won a patent litigation suit against Emptoris Inc. and was awarded $4.9 million in damages. Sunnyvale-based Ariba (NASDAQ:ARBA) said the court has discretion to increase the award related to one patent up to three times because the jury found there was willful patent infrigement. The case in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas revolved around an Ariba patent covering key functions for electronic auctions and found infringement and a second patent also pertaining to electronic auctions.
