U.S. District Judge Nora Barry Fischer on Monday affirmed a federal jury's $1.17 billion verdict in a Carnegie Mellon University patent case but noted that both sides in the lawsuit are filing motions that could affect the judgment.

The jury ruled on Dec. 26 that Marvell Technology Group Ltd. of Bermuda has produced computer chips since 2003 that infringe on two patents the university holds for noise-detection technology used in computer hard drives.

Fischer, in her order, denied pending motions by Marvell seeking a summary judgment that it didn't infringe or that the patents were invalid. She also noted that post-trial motions by both sides are due by Feb. 11, and that Marvell's deadline for appealing the verdict won't start running until she decides those motions.
