Yesterday [September 14th], in what we believe is the largest verdict in an intellectual property case in Virginia, a jury in the Richmond Division of the Eastern District of Virginia awarded Dupont $920 million for misappropriation of trade secrets against the Korean company, Kolon Industries. E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Co. v. Kolon Indus., Inc., 3:09CV58 (E.D. Va. Aug. 14, 2011) (Payne, J.). The jury's 51 page verdict, in which they found for Dupont on all 155 claims of trade secret misappropriation, can be found here. The clerk entered judgment on the verdict the same day.
