Savant/Crestron Suit Goes Forward
The antitrust lawsuit filed by Savant against Crestron last fall will go forward after a judge denied a motion to dismiss, Savant said Thursday.
Savant CEO Robert Madonna said in a statement that he is "pleased" with the ruling.
The suit was filed last fall in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, alleging that Crestron had pressured the dealers it supplies to not offer Savant products, in violation of antitrust laws. The suit was announced as the industry gathered in Atlanta for the 2010 CEDIA Expo.
