Nintendo Co. was ordered to pay $30.2 million to a former Sony Corp. employee after a jury in New York found the company's 3DS machine infringed his patent. The handheld 3DS game and video player infringed a 3-D technology patent held by Seijiro Tomita, the Manhattan jury found.
Tomita, who worked for Sony for almost 30 years before quitting in 2002, sued Nintendo in June 2011. That year Nintendo, the world's biggest video-game console maker, introduced the 3DS, which allows users to see 3-D images without special glasses. Nintendo said it will appeal.
