NEW YORK (Reuters) - Patent holding company Intellectual Ventures' second crack at holding Motorola Mobility liable for using its technology without permission partially succeeded on Wednesday after a U.S. jury in Delaware found Motorola infringed a patent on multimedia text messaging.

The jury, however, cleared Motorola, a unit of China's Lenovo Group, on a second patent, which it said was invalid. The last time these two companies faced off in court ended in a mistrial last year when a jury could not agree on a verdict. Damages are to be determined later.
