In February 1992, Mike was lead trial counsel on behalf of Honeywell in the Honeywell v. Minolta autofocus patent litigation. A jury ordered Minolta to pay Honeywell $96,350,000 on February 7, 1992.  The case settled shortly after a verdict for $127,500,000, which included pre-judgment interest.  Mike went on to represent Honeywell against multiple other defendants with respect to the autofocus technology and Honeywell eventually recovered approximately $500 million for patent infringement.
