Jawbone issued the following statement on ITC ruling for 9/8/2016 related to Fitbit (NYSE: FIT):

The Commission did not find Fitbit’s patents valid. It just sent the case back for additional proceedings before the same Judge that previously found all three Fitbit patents invalid. We are confident the Judge will reach the same result again after he makes the additional findings requested by the Commission. We also believe the Judge will find Fitbit’s patents are not infringed by any Jawbone products and that Jawbone’s own patents predate the patents Fitbit is trying to assert.

In the meantime, Jawbone’s case against Fitbit for trade secret misappropriation proceeds in California state court and is headed to trial in 2017.
