business news in context, analysis with attitude

•  Reuters reports that Amazon's "bid to upend a $5 million verdict from a jury that found its Alexa smart-speaker technology infringed a Vocalife LLC patent was rejected by an East Texas federal judge on Wednesday."

The judge ruled that "at a high level, Amazon’s motion essentially asks the Court to reweigh the evidence and elevate their evidence over that presented by Vocalife … The Court declines to do so.”
