Enterasys loses patent suit

Exterme awarded damages

Extreme Networks has won a year-old patent infringement case against competitor Enterasys Networks.

A jury in the US District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin found that Enterasys infringed on three of Extreme's asserted patents.

In addition to the $US200,000 (NZ$255,000) damages awarded by the jury, Extreme is seeking an injunction prohibiting the infringing Enterasys products from using the patented technology and recovery of its legal fees.

A statmement from Enterasys says "Enterasys respectfully disagrees with the Wisconsin jury's decision and will continue to pursue all avenues of recourse, including post-trial motions and appeals, to set this verdict aside."
