Jenoptik wins Asyst trial
Update on ad-hoc announcements dated February 1, 2007 and August 5, 2007 and the Legal Risks as they were set out in the Obligatory Risk Analysis of the Jenoptik Annual Report.
The Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington confirms the decision of the US District Courts in San José in favor of Jenoptik. In 1996 Asyst Technologies Inc. Jenoptik had sued Jenoptik for damages due to alleged patent infringements. With the decision of the Federal Circuits the court of appeal confirms the opinion of Jenoptik and its counsel in the United States that Asyst’s claims are unfounded and without merit.
The trial, which has been litigious for over ten years, is thus finished. A possible motion by the defeated party seeing further review is only successful in very few exceptional cases.
