Jeld-Wen has been awarded USD 1.2 million in damages in a lawsuit with Steves & Sons
A jury in a federal court in Virginia has awarded Jeld-Wen USD 1.2 million in damages in a lawsuit with Steves & Sons over the possible misappropriation of trade secrets. The company had sought nearly USD 40 million in damages.
The case arose following an antitrust lawsuit earlier this year in which a court ruled that Jeld-Wen had to pay Steves & Sons USD 58.6 million in damages because it overcharged Steves for moulded door skins.
