On Friday, June 17, 2011, after a week-long trial at the U.S. District Court in Wichita Falls, TX, a jury declared that all of the asserted electronic ballast products sold by Universal™ Lighting Technologies (ULT) of Nashville, TN, a subsidiary of Panasonic Corp. and Matsushita Electric Works, Ltd., Japan (MEW), infringe all of the asserted claims of U.S. Patent No. 5,436, 529.

The patented technology relates to a “Control and Protection Circuit for Electronic Ballasts” and provides highly advanced solutions to problems associated with the safety of electronic ballasts when used with certain types of fluorescent lamps. The patent application was filed in 1993 by inventor Andrew Bobel, Founder, CEO, and CTO of NEPTUN Light, Inc. (NEPTUN), a Chicago-area diversified manufacturer of energy conservation lighting products, such as LED, induction, and compact fluorescent (CFL’s).

“This case was about making the right choices related to respect of the patented invention and the respect of the individual inventor by a large global conglomerate,” said Jonathan T. Suder, Partner of Friedman, Suder & Cooke of Fort Worth, TX representing the Plaintiffs and Inventor. “ULT made bad choices and the jury found them infringing,” said Suder.
