About the Case

On October 3, members of Blank Rome’s Intellectual Property group secured another significant victory in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania for Dominion Resources, Inc., against Alstom Grid LLC, regarding Alstom Grid’s willful infringement of a Dominion energy-conservation patent.

The court’s ruling secured for Dominion the patent monopoly to which it is entitled. Additionally, based on Alstom Grid’s conduct in response to Dominion’s pursuit to protect its patent rights, the court awarded Dominion’s request for enhanced damages, doubling the jury’s previous damages award.
