April 17, 2014 - After almost five years of litigation, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. and Fractus SA told a federal court that they have settled their patent lawsuit. Fractus sued Samsung in 2009 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, claiming that Samsung infringed four of its patents on cellphone antennas. Samsung was eventually ordered to pay $38 million, after which Fractus claimed Sansung continued to infringe.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but the parties filed a joint motion to dismiss the suit.
