On February 23, 2022, the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom dismissed an application by Motorola Solutions Inc. (“Motorola”) for permission to appeal against a decision of the Court of Appeal of England and Wales from January 11, 2021. The Supreme Court’s decision, which found that Motorola’s application “does not raise a point which ought to be considered”, represents a final and conclusive victory for Hytera in the English proceedings.
The Court of Appeal had previously dismissed a freezing order made by the High Court of England and Wales in April 2020 against Hytera and its English subsidiary in support of proceedings between Hytera and Motorola in the United States. The appellate court also refused Motorola permission to appeal to the Supreme Court and ordered Motorola to pay Hytera’s costs of the English proceedings. In its own decision, the Supreme Court has now also ordered Motorola to pay Hytera’s costs of its most recent unsuccessful appeal attempt.
