The jury will rule the patent was invalid or unenforceable, or that defendant did NOT infringe your patent, so that the defendant owes you nothing! You might appeal the verdict, but you can’t appeal a jury verdict because you didn’t like the result of the trial. Your attorney must identify a mistake made by the judge, and convince an appellate court the mistake was major enough that it influenced the result of the trial. Appealing a jury verdict, and then re-trying the case, will be Extraordinarily dear and will take years. This is also a doubtful result as only a few patent infringement suits really go to trial.
Dismissal : It is possible the judge may dismiss your patent infringement claim. This is non common, but it is possible the defendant’s attorney will persuade the judge that you fundamentally don’t have a case and you are wasting the court’s time.
