By Memorandum Order entered by The Honorable Leonard P. Stark in M/A- COM Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc. v. Laird Technologies, Inc., C.A. 14-181-LPS (D.Del., June 13, 2014), the Court granted Plaintiff M/A-Com Technology Solutions Holdings, Inc.’s (“MACOM”) Motion for Preliminary Injunction seeking to enjoin Defendant Laird Technologies, Inc. (“Laird”) from supplying Ford Motor Company (“Ford”) with GPS modules that MACOM contends infringe its patent, U.S. Patent No. 6,272,349 (“the ‘349 Patent”). In granting the preliminary injunction in this patent infringement action, the Court found that (1) MACOM is likely to succeed on the merits (meaning that MACOM demonstrated that it is likely to prove infringement of the ‘349 patent and Laird did not raise a substantial question of patent validity); (2) MACOM met its burden to show that it will suffer irreparable harm in the absence of preliminary relief; (3) the balance of the equities tip in MACOM’s favor; and (4) the public interest favors granting the preliminary injunction. Id. at 2-16.
