Court Affirms Schott Patent Case

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
WASHINGTON, DC, March 22, 2010 — The US Supreme Court has declined to overturn a permanent injunction and damage award against Saint-Gobain Corp. The company was found to have violated Schott Gemtron’s US Patent No. 6,679,573 (“the ‘573 patent”) on 35 specifically identified models of refrigerator shelves that have been imported into, used or sold in the US. The ‘573 patent covers refrigerator shelves that are made of a plastic frame and a glass panel that snap together.

The court denied Saint-Gobain’s petition for certiori, making the injunction and damages award against it final. The trial court ruling permanently enjoined Saint-Gobain from manufacturing for import into the US refrigerator shelves infringing on the ‘573 patent and awarded Schott Gemtron compensatory damages for past sales of infringing refrigerator shelves by Saint-Gobain.
