Contempt of Preliminary Injunction Granted in High-Stakes Patent Litigation

News Headlines

Hueston Hennigan prevailed on its motion filed on behalf of client ClearOne to hold Shure in contempt for violating the preliminary injunction order granted by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

The Honorable Edmond E. Chang in the Northern District of Illinois found that “the record is clear that Shure—through its design choices—violated the injunction order by allowing integrators to install the MXA910-A in the enjoined flush configuration” and ordered additional discovery to determine “how widespread the violation is and what would be the appropriate relief arising from the violation.” We had previously obtained a preliminary injunction for ClearOne to cease sales of Shure’s MXA910 product in its infringing flush configuration.

ClearOne is a global company that designs and develops conferencing, collaboration, and networked streaming devices. Its customers include Boeing, Toyota, Netflix, Exxon, and Kaiser Permanente.

This is another significant victory in the string of patent victories that we have achieved for ClearOne.

The Hueston Hennigan team included Douglas J. Dixon, Christy Rayburn, Sourabh Mishra, Neil Anderson, Karen Younkins, Michael Acquah, and Maxwell Coll.
