“A federal jury in Delaware, US, last week determined that Caterpillar’s road-milling machines had infringed five of six Wirtgen patents.

The jury also found that Caterpillar’s infringement was “wilful”, which could lead to a judge multiplying the damages by up to three times.

Wirtgen launched a lawsuit in 2017 and accused Caterpillar of infringing its patents related to cold milling technology used for rehabilitating road surfaces. It requested an undisclosed amount of monetary damages.”

Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox teamed with Nashville-based Patterson IP Law Group to secure the win.
