Court rules on patent violation

The United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division has granted equipment manufacturer Garvey Corp.’s motion for a preliminary injunction to prevent Barry-Wehmiller Design Group, Fleetwood, Inc., and any related companies from manufacturing, displaying, promoting, marketing, selling, shipping, distributing, or installing any of Fleetwood’s CMAS product accumulators.

The court found it “reasonably likely” that a jury will find that Fleetwood’s CMAS accumulators are covered by the claims of Garvey’s patents relating to its Infinity® line of accumulators. The dispute arose out of a bottling line project for E&J Gallo Winery. The March 24 2005 order can by read by clicking on “Judge’s Memorandum Order and Opinion” on Garvey’s home page: www.garvey.com.
