3M Co. (MMM: Quote), along with its wholly-owned subsidiary 3M Innovative Properties Co., said Thursday that they have successfully concluded their lawsuits against Avery Dennison Corp. (AVY: Quote) relating to retroreflective sheeting products used on traffic signs, pavement markings and other traffic control products.
3M's patent infringement litigation against Avery Dennison has been resolved with the court entering a consent judgment in favor of 3M.
Avery's separate claims of patent infringement and antitrust violations against 3M have been dismissed by the court with prejudice.
Reflective sheeting technology was pioneered by 3M more than 60 years ago. 3M continues to lead innovation in that technology, investing enormous resources to develop products, such as its 3M Diamond Grade DG Reflective Sheeting, to meet the changing traffic control needs and visual requirements of motorists.
