Syngenta Crop Protection, LLC (″Syngenta″) and Atticus LLC (″Atticus″) announced that they have settled all claims and counterclaims in the lawsuit between Syngenta and Atticus.
In 2019, Syngenta sued agrochemical maker Atticus LLC ("Atticus") for patent infringement.
The complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, alleges, among other things, that Atticus' Acadia 2 SC, Acadia ESQ, Aquila XL, Artavia 2 SC and Artavia Xcel products each infringe certain Syngenta patents relating to the manufacture of azoxystrobin fungicide.
Details of the settlement agreement are confidential. Both parties agree that valid intellectual property rights are important to the industry and should be respected. Atticus will continue to offer for sale its azoxystrobin products.
