A U.S. jury in Chicago found that Hytera of Shenzhen used Motorola Solutions confidential documents and copyrighted source code to compete in the wireless communications market.

Hytera, a former distributor of Motorola Solutions products, informed the jury that it had developed its radios itself.

The verdict was the maximum amount Motorola Solutions had requested from judges.

Motorola Solutions planned to obtain an injunction that would prevent Hytera from further abusing business secrets and infringing copyrights.

“We have provided clear facts and evidence of the theft and injury to Hytera and are pleased that the jury has chosen our client,” said Michael De Vries, a Kirkland & Ellis lawyer who represents the Chicago-based company, in a statement.

Boyd Cloern, a lawyer at Hytera, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Motorola Solutions has filed a separate U.S. patent infringement lawsuit against Hytera. A trial in this case is expected in late 2020 or early 2021, the U.S. company said.

Hytera has its own pending U.S. lawsuit against Motorola Solutions, alleging that the company used intellectual property litigation and market power litigation to suppress competition.
