Nearly three years after taking Bridgeport Fittings to court for copyright infringement, Arlington Industries won its case when a federal jury found that its patent for covered plastic box extenders was infringed upon by the Stratford, Conn.-based company. The jury awarded Scranton, Pa.-based Arlington with damages and rejected Bridgeport’s defenses that the patent was invalid, indefinite, and unenforceable for inequitable conduct.

In an independent decision, a federal district court judge rejected Bridgeport’s claim of inequitable conduct. A permanent injunction will be issued against Bridgeport sometime this week.
