Continental Automotive Withdraws Injunction, TRO Requests In Suit Against iBiquity
July 2, 2014 at 4:17 AM (PT)
Car radio manufacturer CONTINENTAL AUTOMOTIVE SYSTEMS, INC. and CONTINENTAL AUTOMOTIVE GmbH have asked the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of ILLINOIS, Eastern Division to withdraw their motion for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against HD RADIO company iBIQUITY DIGITAL CORP. The motion to withdraw was filed on TUESDAY (7/1) and granted.
CONTINENTAL alleges in the complaint that iBIQUITY misused its HD RADIO patents to "improperly expand the scope of its patent monopoly by demanding royalties over components not within the scope of the patent claims." iBIQUITY has responded that the court does not have jurisdiction because another case with substantially the same claims was previously brought in MARYLAND.
