Korea revisiting FormFactor patent case

February 10, 2006 – The Korean Patent Court has issued an oral ruling declining to render a decision on a case brought by FormFactor Inc. against Phicom Corp. regarding wafer probe-card technology, and reopening the case for further proceedings.

The court also issued a ruling on a Korean patent filed by FormFactor, invalidating 10 claims of the patent, with written opinions explaning the ruling expected in about three weeks. FormFactor had added several of the 61 claims attached to that patent in its lawsuit against Phicom, which goes back to early 2004.
