ISC v. ALTECH

December 5, 1990

ISC--BUNKER RAMO CORPORATION, Plaintiff-Counterdefendant,
v.
ALTECH, INC., Defendant-Counterplaintiff


George M. Marovich, United States District Judge.


The opinion of the court was delivered by: MAROVICH

GEORGE M. MAROVICH, UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE

 This action for copyright infringement, misappropriation of trade secrets and interference with contract was filed on November 27, 1989; thereafter, on June 25, 1990, the Court entered a preliminary injunction. 765 F. Supp. 1310 (N.D. Ill. 1990). Now, as a result of arm's-length negotiations, the parties have agreed to a resolution of the claims asserted in this action, and have agreed that a final injunction order shall be entered, premised upon the Court making findings of fact and conclusions of law that are substantially identical to those set forth by the Court in its preliminary injunction order. The parties specifically agree that each of the Findings of Fact set forth below could be proved by the plaintiff, ISC-Bunker Ramo Corporation, at trial, and shall be deemed to have been so proved for purposes of this Consent Judgment. Therefore, upon consent of the parties, it is found, concluded and ordered as follows:

 I. FINDINGS OF FACT

 The Findings of Fact set forth in the Court's Memorandum Opinion and Order, dated June 25, 1990, which adopted, in their entirety, the proposed Findings of Fact set forth in the Magistrate's Report and Recommendation, dated May 17, 1990, are hereby incorporated into this Consent Judgment.

 II. CONCLUSIONS OF LAW

 The Conclusions of Law set forth in the Court's Memorandum Opinion and Order, dated June 25, 1990, which also adopted, in their entirety, the proposed Conclusions of Law set forth in the Magistrate's Report and Recommendation, dated May 17, 1990, are hereby incorporated into this Consent Judgment.

 (b) This portion of the permanent injunction shall last for five years after the entry hereof.

 (c) If Altech wishes to continue to service ISC computer systems after the entry hereof, it is free to do so with new employees.
