It seems that a new lawsuit was filed by Panduit Corp against Tyco Electronics Corporation in Illinois on January 4, 2006 (Case No. 1:2006cv00024).
One of the Patents in contention is 6,981,893 entitled Angled patch panel with cable support bar for network cable racks. Quite the mouthful!
With all respect to Panduit, Tyco may get a head start on its defense and untangling itself from this mess, by examining our attached proposed list of potentially material prior art for the patent in play.
We trust that you folks will relish them as much as we did in preparing them.
