BridgeLux responds to Cree lawsuit

Sunnyvale, California, USA, BridgeLux, Inc., a leading supplier of energy saving LED chips to high-volume solid state lighting market segments, confirmed that on September 12, 2006, it was served in a lawsuit filed by Cree, Inc. and Boston University alleging infringement of US Patent Numbers 6,657,236 and 5,686,738.

“We believe in the importance of respecting the intellectual property rights of others, just as we expect that others will respect our rights,” said Dr. Robert C. Walker, CEO of BridgeLux. “However, we also believe this lawsuit to be without merit, and we will vigorously defend against the claims that have been brought.”
