A federal jury in Kansas City, Kan., awarded Sprint $139.8 million in a patent infringement lawsuit against Time Warner Cable on Friday.
Sprint had sued Time Warner in 2011, arguing that the cable company had infringed on a number of patents that dealt with handling telephone calls through data networks rather than expensive traditional switching equipment.
