In Power Integrations, Inc. v. Fairchild Semiconductor International, Inc., et al., C.A. No. 08-309-LPS (D. Del. Apr. 25, 2013) (unsealed on May 3, 2013), after the Court held a bench trial on inequitable conduct and post-trial briefs were filed, Judge Stark issued his findings of fact and conclusions of law on whether the patents at issue were unenforceable due to inequitable conduct. The Court found that (1) the defendants did not commit inequitable conduct during prosecution of the ’972 patent; and (2) the plaintiff did not commit inequitable conduct during reexamination of the ’851 patent.
