October 19, 2017 – Arlington Industries Inc. and Bridgeport Fittings Inc. have reached an agreement that settles all litigation currently pending between the companies.
In connection with this settlement, Arlington has received payment of $1.37 million for the judgment in case No. 3:06-cv-1105 in the Middle District of Pennsylvania against Bridgeport’s 3838ASP and 3838SP Whipper-Snap Duplex connectors.
Bridgeport has dismissed its appeal from that judgment and Arlington has dismissed its cross-appeal seeking attorney’s fees.
This settlement also resolves Arlington’s contempt allegations against Bridgeport in case No. 3:02-cv-00134 in the Middle District of Pennsylvania.
All other terms of the parties’ settlement are confidential.
Arlington says this recent payment brings its recovery for violations of its Snap-Tite and Snap2It patents to $12 million.
