As noted in previous posts (here and here) local weapons maker A.R.M.S. had succeeded at trial on a trade secret claim against a former employee and his new company, but had met defeat on summary judgment on its patent infringement claim. Judge Saris has now entered final judgment on the above claims (including a $1.8M judgment against the defendant) and a counterclaim for patent infringement has been dismissed for lack of prosecution. No doubt that $1.8M verdict against it had some impact on Defendant’s failure to proceed on the counterclaim.
