a year after DuPont won a landmark $920 million verdict in a trade secrets theft
case involving its Kevlar technology, a federal judge has ordered an injunction
prohibiting Kolon Industries from producing and selling its competing product.
The ruling, issued Aug. 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District
of Virginia, orders Kolon to stop manufacturing and selling its Heracron aramid
fiber – which the court ruled was developed after trade secrets were stolen from
DuPont – for 20 years.
Partners Brian Riopelle and Rodney Satterwhite have been leading McGuireWoods’ representation
of DuPont in this case.
