Federal Signal Denies Misleading Statements Made By Neology In Patent Litigation

Stocks in this article: FSS

Finally, Neology falsely states that it can now "move for a quick resolution of these issues.  Neology will now move forward to seek a permanent injunction against FS's infringing products and to recover substantial and material damages suffered from FS's infringement."  In fact, Neology already tried to move for "a quick resolution of these issues" by filing a motion for a preliminary injunction.  Neology's attempt at a quick resolution in its favor has now failed, and just last week, Neology agreed to a schedule for the case that ensures the trial in this matter will not take place until 2014 at the earliest. 

Further, Federal Signal looks forward not only to defeating Neology's allegations of infringement and validity, but also defeating Neology's claims for damages and a permanent injunction.  Federal Signal is pleased with Judge Thynge's recommendation that Neology is not entitled to a preliminary injunction, because many of the considerations that factor into whether a party should get a preliminary injunction are the same as those a court examines when considering a permanent injunction. 

For instance, Neology must show irreparable harm in order to get a permanent injunction.  In her recommendation that Neology's motion for a preliminary injunction be denied, Judge Thynge found that Neology had not carried its burden of demonstrating irreparable harm.  As part of that finding, Judge Thynge stated that the "evidence does not support [Neology's] contention that defendants have denied, or will deny, Neology entry into the U.S. tolling market."  Judge Thynge also stated that the Court "rejects Neology's price erosion theory in support of its claim of irreparable harm."  Additionally, Judge Thynge noted that Federal Signal is "not responsible for the losses Neology suffered before becoming profitable in 2009, nor the cost-cutting measures that allegedly account for [Neology's] profitability from 2009-11."
