Interdigital said it was disappointed by the decision, as it goes against earlier court rulings on the same patents. It plans an appeal in federal court. Interdigital filed the suit against Nokia and ZTE in 2013, alleging unfair trade practices for selling certain 3G and 4G devices that violated seven of its patents.
