BridgeLux Inc. announced it has filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit filed against it by Cree Inc. and Boston University on Sept. 12, 2006 alleging infringement of U.S. patent numbers 6,657,236 and 5,686,738. The LED chip supplier at the same time filed a suit against Cree for infringement of its U.S. patent number 6,869,812.

"We reiterate our belief that Cree's lawsuit is without merit, and we will vigorously defend against the claims that have been brought" said Dr. Robert C. Walker, CEO of BridgeLux.

In addition, the company commenced an action seeking declaratory relief against Cree and Boston University, declaring that BridgeLux does not infringe the '236 and '738 patents, as well as certain other Cree patents.

"We believe in the importance of respecting the intellectual property rights of others, just as we expect that others will respect our rights," continued Walker.
