The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California granted Qualcomm Inc.'s motion to dismiss a lawsuit brought by Broadcom Corp. seeking a declaration that Qualcomm's patents are exhausted and unenforceable.

U.S. District Court Judge William Q. Hayes held that Broadcom failed to show it was entitled to declaratory relief because it did not identify any specific patents that were allegedly exhausted, or an exhaustion triggering sale or license. The court also ruled that Broadcom's purported injuries were too speculative to support the claims alleged.
