COURT ORDERS EXPEDITED HEARING IN VRINGO LAWSUIT AGAINST ZTE IN INDIA


   ZTE Ordered To Pay Bond of 50 Million Rupees and To Provide Accounting of
                    Infringing Products for Past and Future

NEW YORK - December 16, 2013 - Vringo, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRNG), a company engaged in
the innovation, development and monetization of intellectual property and mobile
technologies,  today announced  that the  High Court  of Delhi  at New Delhi has
ordered an expedited trial in Vringo's lawsuit against ZTE.

According to the Court's order:

The  trial shall  be completed  within six  months from  the first  day when the
matter  is listed  before the  local commissioner.  The learned Single Judge may
take-up the matter after completion of trial on an expedited basis.

The order follows the High Court's grant of an ex-parte ad-interim injunction on
November   8, 2013, restraining  ZTE  from  manufacturing,  importing,  selling,
offering  for sale, using, advertising  (either directly or indirectly including
through  third party  websites) infringing  products, including mobile handsets,
dongles,  tablets,  and  infrastructure  equipment  compliant  with the CDMA2000
technology  associated with India Patent  No. 243,980, owned by Vringo's wholly-
owned subsidiary, Vringo Infrastructure, Inc.

Vringo  filed a suit against ZTE Telecom India Private Limited, ZTE Corporation,
and  Xu Dejun, Chief Executive Officer of  ZTE Telecom India Private Limited, in
the  High Court of Delhi at New  Delhi on November 7, 2013.  The lawsuit alleges
infringement  of the  '980 patent,  titled "Mobile  Station Operable  with Radio
Access  Network and a Packet  Data Serving Node and  a Method for Operating Such
Mobile Station."

In  preparation for the expedited hearing, the High Court has set a schedule for
pleadings  and discovery and has appointed a commissioner to oversee the process
of  recording of evidence at  the trial stage. Following  a hearing, on December
12, 2013, the  High Court passed a  consent order ordering ZTE  to pay a bond of
50 million  rupees (approximately  $800,000 USD)  in place  of the  ex-parte ad-
interim  injunction.   Further,  ZTE  Corporation  and ZTE Telecom India Private
Limited  are required to file an affidavit  of one of their Directors disclosing
the  number of CDMA devices  sold by the ZTE  entities in India and the revenues
earned  from such sales,  along with appropriate  documents such as invoices and
bills  of entry supporting the same for both past and future periods.  The Court
permitted  Vringo to seek  additional relief upon  its review of  the quantum of
ZTE's  sales pursuant to the foregoing  disclosure.   The Court further directed
that  the Indian Customs authorities continue to notify Vringo when all relevant
ZTE  goods are imported  into India and  give Vringo the  opportunity to inspect
such goods.
