Jury rules in favor of Plantronics in GN Audio’s lawsuit against Plantronics

Ballerup, DENMARK

Today, a jury in the Federal District Court in Wilmington, Delaware, has ruled in favor of Plantronics in the lawsuit brought by GN Audio against Plantronics. In 2012, GN Audio filed a lawsuit against Plantronics for unlawful monopolization of the distributors market in the US. The jury has not found that Plantronics’ behavior in the market place was unlawful.

GN Audio will, upon receipt of the written reasons for the judgment, decide whether or not it will appeal the decision.
