Finjan Provides Litigation Update in Blue Coat Case

Trial Set to Begin July 20, 2015

EAST PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 14, 2015) - Finjan Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: FNJN), a cybersecurity company, is providing a litigation update in its case against Blue Coat Systems, Inc. (CAND-13-cv-03999-BLF). Pre-trial conference was completed July 2, 2015 and the case will proceed to trial, as planned July 20, 2015, with all six patents against accused infringing Blue Coat products and services. The trial is expected to last for two weeks.

A Pre-trial conference was held before the Honorable Beth Labson-Freeman on July 2, 2015. Pre-trial motions, specifically, motions in limine, which request the Court to exclude certain evidence at trial, were heard on July 2, 2015.

On July 6, 2015, the Court heard the parties' motions to exclude certain expert testimony, a specialized motion in limine also known as Daubert Motions. Generally, Daubert Motions request courts to exclude testimony of a purported expert on the grounds that the witness either does not possess the requisite level of expertise, or used unreliable data, methods, or principles in arriving at their opinion.

On July 8, 2015, Judge Freeman's Order on the parties' Motions in limine and Pre-trial Orders was entered (Docket No. 367). The Order on the parties' Daubert Motions is pending with the Court and might not be entered until after the trial begins. There are no remaining motions to be heard outside of the trial.

Finjan has filed patent infringement lawsuits against FireEye, Proofpoint, Sophos, Symantec, and Palo Alto Networks relating to, collectively, more than 20 patents in the Finjan portfolio. The court dockets for the foregoing cases are publicly available on the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) website,, which is operated by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.
