TROY, Mich., — There will be an appeal launched against the decision in the patent infringement suit brought by Eaton against ArvinMeritor on the Engine Synchro Shift (ESS) transmission system.
Judge Joseph Farnan of the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware issued Eaton’s requested injunction prohibiting ArvinMeritor from producing and selling ESS transmissions and denied ArvinMeritor’s motion for stay of injunction pending appeal.
“We are disappointed that the District Court issued this injunction in Eaton’s favor,” says Vernon Baker, senior vice-president and general counsel, ArvinMeritor. “ArvinMeritor and its predecessor, Rockwell International Corporation, have believed from the beginning that Eaton’s suit was without merit and ArvinMeritor will appeal.”
