HikVision defeated the patent trolls -

"Hikvision USA Inc., the North American leader in innovative, award-winning video surveillance products and solutions, has been declared the prevailing party in a patent infringement case initiated in the Eastern District of Texas..."


"In addition, the costs associated with the case were awarded to Hikvision."

What? The plaintiff in the case was required to pay the cost of Hikvisions defense of the claim?

Did the court rule that the patent infringement claim was frivolous? I've never seen this type of award without such a ruling.
