Fleet Engineers announced it received a favorable judgment in the matter of Fleet Engineers Inc. v. Tarun Surti and Mudguard Technologies LLC.

According to court documents, Fleet Engineers alleged Mudguard committed “tortious interference with business relationships, while Mudguard counterclaimed patent infringement and breach of contract against Fleet Engineers.” In the summary judgment decision on June 8, 2017, judge Paul L. Maloney ruled that the Fleet Engineers AeroFlap does not infringe US Patent No. RE44,755, and also denied Mudguard’s counterclaims, according to the company.

“We are pleased with the court’s decision, which affirmed our longstanding belief that the AeroFlap did not infringe Mudguard’s patent,” said Wes Eklund, CEO of Fleet Engineers.
