Arlington Indus., Inc. v. Bridgeport Fittings, Inc., 10-1025

Action for infringement of patents related to improved electrical connector

Arlington Indus., Inc. v. Bridgeport Fittings, Inc., 10-1025, concerned an action for infringement of patents related to an improved electrical connector that snaps into electrical junction boxes with one hand instead of two.  In vacating the district court's grant of summary judgment of noninfringement, non-willfulness, and no damages as to the patents-in-suit, the court remanded the case in concluding that the district court in parties' second case misconstrued the "spring metal adapter" and "spring steel adapter" terms by importing a "split" limitation from the specifications into the claims.
