SynQor Announces Denial of Defendants' Motions for Rehearing
Boxborough, MA - On March 13, 2013, in a unanimous decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals
for the Federal Circuit in Washington D.C. affirmed the decision of the US District
Court for the Eastern District of Texas and upheld a $95M jury verdict previously
won by SynQor, as well as the Court's additional award of supplemental damages and
sanctions. SynQor, Inc. v. Artesyn Technologies, Inc. et al Civil Action No. 2:07-CV-497
E.D. Texas. (Click here to see this document.)
SynQor announced today that the Federal Circuit has summarily denied the defendants'
requests for a rehearing or a rehearing en banc of that Courtís decision effectively
ending the defendants' appeals as of right in the federal court system.
In the original case, SynQor asserted 5 patents against 11 of the largest industry
suppliers of unregulated and semi-regulated bus converters in the US District Court
for the Eastern District of Texas. Since that time, SynQor has commenced a new action
against Cisco Systems and Vicor Corporation for infringement of the same patents.
SynQor, Inc. v. Cisco Systems and Vicor Corporation, Civil Action No. 2:11-CV-54
E.D. Texas. Additionally, SynQor has asserted U.S. Patent Nos. 7,787,261 and 8,149,597
titled "Intermediate Bus Architecture With A Quasi-Regulated Bus Converter" against
Cisco Systems. SynQor, Inc. v. Cisco Systems Corp., Civil Action No. 2:13-CV-232
Also pending before the District Court is an action for, among other things, supplemental
damages and sanctions against Astec America, Inc., Bel Fuse, Inc., Power One, Inc.,
Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd., and Murata Power Solutions Inc. for continued infringing
sales that took place after the Court first entered its permanent injunction. In
that action, SynQor is also seeking sanctions against Cisco based upon its and the
aforementioned defendants' violation of the District Court's permanent injunction.
SynQor, Inc. v. Artesyn Technologies, Inc. et al Civil Action No. 2:11-CV-444 E.D.
SynQor's patents at issue in the lawsuit were U.S. Patent Nos. 7,072,190, 7,272,021,
7,558,083, 7,564,702 and 7,269,034.
Inquiries concerning the foregoing should be directed to Arthur R. Hofmann, Jr.,
SynQor's Executive Vice President and General Counsel.
