New Medium LLC v. Barco N.V., No. 05 C 5620, 2008 WL 4615682 (N.D. Ill. Oct. 16, 2008) (Posner, J. sitting by designation).

I was previously involved in this case and, therefore, I have not posted about prior opinions in detail.  But because I posted that Judge Posner (who is sitting by designation) was holding an inequitable conduct bench trial/evidentiary hearing in the case, I am posting the opinion Judge Posner issued based upon that hearing — click here to read the opinion and here for the Blog’s prior post.  The Court dismissed one of defendant’s inequitable conduct arguments, but based upon the other, held two of the patents in suit unenforceable because of inequitable conduct.
