The case revolved around Voxer's patented technology that enables real-time voice messaging and communication over the internet. Voxer claimed that Meta had knowingly and willfully infringed upon its patents by incorporating similar features into its popular platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. Voxer argued that Meta's actions not only harmed its business but also violated its intellectual property rights. The jury found that Meta had indeed infringed upon Voxer's patents willfully, indicating that Meta was aware of Voxer's patents and intentionally used similar technology without permission. The jury's verdict was decisive: Meta was ordered to pay Voxer nearly $175 million in damages for its patent infringement. In Voxer, Inc., et al. v. Meta Platforms, Inc. f/k/a Facebook, Inc., 2023 WL 6060348 (W.D. Tex., September 18, 2023) , United States Magistrate Judge Susan Hightower, in her Report and Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge to United States District Judge David A. Ezra of the Western District of Texas, Austin Division, recently recommended that the District Court Grant in Part and Deny in Part Voxer’s Motion in Support of Its Bill of Costs. The District Court awarded Voxer, as the prevailing party, recovery of all its costs. Facebook paid some but objected to a portion of what Voxer requested. In its Bill of Costs, Voxer sought to recover $229,042.35 in deposition and copying costs. Facebook petitioned the Court to reject Voxer's request for compensation totaling $37,185.70 related to expedited transcripts and incidental deposition costs. Facebook argued that expenses related to nineteen expedited deposition transcripts, totaling $9,289.25, as well as various incidental deposition costs totaling $27,896.45. The Court's examination revealed that Voxer has satisfactorily demonstrated the necessity of expedited transcripts, arising from the fact that these depositions were conducted in close proximity to critical expert and dispositive motion deadlines. The Court also found however, that Voxer failed to meet its evidentiary burden regarding the remaining incidental deposition costs. Consequently, the Court recommended excluding the sum of $27,896.45 from the costs to be taxed. Following additional analysis of all Voxer’s costs, Magistrate Judge Hightower recommended the U.S. District Court award Voxer $138,004.94 in costs, roughly $100K less than for what Voxer had asked. These numbers are of little consequence to a company like Meta, currently valued at approximately $433 billion. But for a company like Voxer, with $1.3 million in revenue in 2022, such costs, and the non-award of those costs, are significant. Voxer did not identify the source of the incidentals related to its depositions. Nor can we know the total cost of all the depositions held in this case. Though we can assume that as Voxer is based in Dallas, Texas and Meta is based in Menlo Park, California, travel, hotel, ride share, coffee, lunch, and dinner costs were a large portion of its Bill of Costs. Nor do we know the attorneys’ fees to prepare, research, file, and argue and oppose all the motions related to Voxer’s Bill of Costs. One thing we can know for certain: remote litigation can save your client a sizable amount of money. For any litigator representing a client for whom costs are important, or at least any client more cost-conscious than Meta, reliable, secure remote litigation makes sense.
