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.
