Dr. Jackson provides litigation support through reports, depositions, and live testimony in the following areas:
Patent Validity and Infringement
Capital and Depreciation Requirements
Radio Frequency Interference
Patent Case: In a patent case involving wireless infrastructure, a draft of Dr. Jackson's expert report regarding possession and enablement was shared with the defendant. The litigation settled soon thereafter – as plaintiff's counsel told Dr. Jackson, "They really didn't want your report to be made public."
FCC Rules: In two cases, Dr. Jackson prepared testimony regarding the development of rules and policies at the FCC. The purpose of such testimony was to permit the court and the jury to better understand the development of the relevant FCC rules, the policy concerns that led to the development of those rules, and the proper context within which to understand the rules.
Telecommunications and Wireless Technologies: Dr. Jackson has testified as an expert witness for the Department of Justice and the Internal Revenue Service on a variety of topics in telecommunications and wireless technologies. In two of these cases, DOJ was counsel for the FCC and Dr. Jackson served as an expert witness for the FCC.
Audio Patent: For a small firm tht had a patent on an innovative audio entertainment decide, Dr. Jackson provided expert witness testimony in the form of reports on both infringement and validity, and testified at a Markman hearing. This litigation settled two weeks after Dr. Jackson's testimony at the Markman.
Antitrust: Dr. Jackson provided expert report and desposition testimony in an antitrust suit regarding handset bundling for the defendants. Dr. Jackson's testimony explained the tight tie between bandsets and network infrastructure and how analogies between wireless handsets and wired handsets could easily mislead.
