Bobel v. U Lighting Am., Inc., No. 12 C 6064, Slip Op. (N.D. Ill. Feb. 12, 2013) (Kennelly, J.).
Judge Kennelly denied defendants U Lighting America and its sole officer and employee’s (collectively “ULA”) motion to dismiss this patent suit for lack of personal jurisdiction. The Court had specific jurisdiction over ULA because ULA shipped 76,000 of the accused compact fluorescent lights in five shipments to a third party in Illinois.
