Nintendo ordered to pay $10M following Wii patent infringement suit, Nintendo plans to appeal

"On Aug. 31, 2017, a jury in Texas found that certain Wii and Wii U video game systems and software bundles infringed a patent belonging to iLife Technologies Inc. related to detecting if a person has fallen down. The jury awarded iLife $10 million in damages. Nintendo disagrees with the decision, as Nintendo does not infringe iLife’s patent and the patent is invalid. Nintendo looks forward to raising those issues with the district court and with the court of appeals."

I can remember numerous times when Nintendo took their case to the court of appeals and won. We'll see if they continue that string of luck with this recent loss.
