This verdict, delivered in the U.S. District Court in Delaware, marks the culmination of a battle over the intricate technologies that power the road milling machines which are crucial to global infrastructure development. The case, presided over by Judge Joshua D. Wolson, has not only highlighted the fierce competition within the construction equipment industry but also underscored the critical importance of intellectual property rights in fostering innovation and competition.”
