Concrete Steel Co. v. Vendenburgh, 261 U.S. 16 (1923)
Concrete Steel Company v. Vendenburgh
Argued January 17, 1923
Decided February 19, 1923
261 U.S. 16
CERTIORARI TO THE CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS
FOR THE SECOND CIRCUIT
Decided upon the ground expressed in Vandenburgh v. Truscon Steel Co., ante 261 U. S. 6.
278 F. 607 reversed.
Certiorari to a decree of the circuit court of appeals sustaining a patent and awarding damages for infringement.
MR. CHIEF JUSTICE TAFT delivered the opinion of the Court.
This is a review of the decree of the circuit court of appeals of the Second Circuit, sustaining the validity of claim No. 3 of the Vandenburgh patent, just considered in the previous case of Vandenburgh v. Truscon Steel Co., ante, 261 U. S. 6, and awarding $15,000 for profits to Vandenburgh for defendant's infringement. The two cases cannot be distinguished. We must therefore reverse
the decree of the circuit court of appeals of the Second Circuit and direct the dismissal of the bill.
