Virginia Jury Rules for Twitter in Patent Lawsuit

November 2, 2011

A federal jury in Norfolk has ruled in favor of Twitter in a patent lawsuit.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that the jury on Monday rejected northern Virginia patent attorney Dinesh Agarwal’s claim that Twitter used his patented technology to develop the ‘browse interests’ page on the social networking site.

Agarwal invented his own interactive web program to track famous people or people with similar interests. He sought millions from Twitter, claming it used his patent without permission.

Agarwal said he was disappointed with the jury’s decision.

Twitter attorney Elliot Peters called it a “just verdict.”
