Fed. Cir. Won't Hear Appeal of Infringer's Injunction Contempt Until Sanctions Set
Jul.17.2014 — BNA
This article covers the case Arlington Industries, Inc. v. Bridgeport Fittings Inc., and notes "the key holding in the case is that Bridgeport Fittings appealed too soon after it was found in contempt of an injunction for patent infringement." Of particular note regarding the outcome of this matter, BNA reports that "the Federal Circuit doesn't have jurisdiction over contempt orders until sanctions are entered; Bosch applies to infringement cases only." Washington D.C. -based, Intellectual Property Group partner Kathryn L. Clune represented Arlington Industries in the case.
