As noted last week, just before Christmas U.S. District Judge James Selna released the public redacted version of his memorandum of findings of fact and conclusions of law in TCL Communication Technology Holdings, Ltd. v. Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson, Case No. SACV 14-341 JVS (DFMx) (available in three parts: part 1, part 2, and part 3). Professor Jorge Contreras has already published a thorough post on the decision on Patently-O, and Richard Vary of Bird & Bird recently published an analysis as well (here). I don't see much point in my repeating what they've already said, but I will note a few things that made a particular impression on me.
