SynQor Prevails in Supreme Court
Boxborough, MA – SynQor announced today that the Supreme Court of the United States
has denied the defendants' request for review of a $95M jury verdict previously
won by SynQor in the Eastern District of Texas. SynQor, Inc. v. Artesyn Technologies,
Inc. et al Civil Action No. 2:07-CV-497 E.D. Texas. "The U.S.
Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and now the Supreme Court of the United
States have sustained the process followed by the trial court in Texas upholding
the validity of our IBA patents, the infringement by the defendants and the damages
awarded by the jury. We are delighted to be at the end of this case,"
commented Dr. Martin F. Schlecht, Chief Executive Officer of SynQor.
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. 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.
Since that time, SynQor has commenced a new action against Cisco Systems and Vicor
Corporation for alleged infringement of the same patents. SynQor, Inc. v. Cisco
Systems and Vicor Corporation, Civil Action No. 2:11-CV-54 E.D. Texas (the '54 case").
Inquiries concerning the foregoing should be directed to Arthur R. Hofmann, Jr.,
