Summit Wins Jury Trial for SK Hynix America, Inc. in $175 Million Breach of Contract Suit Brought by Microsoft Subsidiary

A Summit Law Group trial team led by Alex Baehr with SK Hynix national trial counsel prevailed in a federal jury trial before Judge Richard A. Jones in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington in Seattle. Defending SK Hynix America, Inc., one of the largest memory and semiconductor chip manufacturers in the world, Summit Law warded off claims that Hynix had breached a DRAM chip supply contract with Microsoft, impacting the November 2013 launch of its Xbox One gaming console. The lawsuit began in 2016 after Microsoft's subsidiary Cypress Insurance Company sued Hynix to recoup the $175 million that had been paid by insurers to Microsoft.

On March 28th, after four days of deliberations, the jury returned with a unanimous verdict in favor of SK Hynix, finding that Hynix had not breached the supply contract and rejecting all of Microsoft's alleged damages.
