On November 28th, 2012, we announced that HALO won a jury verdict in a long-running patent dispute involving our proprietary package design for surface mount magnetic components. The jury found that defendants Pulse Electronics, Inc. and Pulse Electronics, Corp. infringed three different HALO patents and found them liable for past damages.
On June 17th, 2013, the Court entered a permanent injunction prohibiting Pulse from making, using, offering to sell, or selling any infringing product within the United States or importing into the United States any infringing product. Pulse is also prohibited from actively inducing infringement of Halo Electronics Inc.’s patents by assisting others in making, using, importing, selling or offering to sell in the United States any infringing product. This injunction will become effective October 15, 2013.
