Metalcraft of Mayville, Inc. v. The Toro Co., 2016-2433

In an infringement suit brought by a manufacturer of commercial riding lawnmowers involving a patent which discloses a suspended operator platform for a ride-on lawnmower or other riding light utility vehicle connected to a rigid chassis by a suspension system, the district court's grant of preliminary injunction precluding defendants from making, using, selling, and offering to sell lawnmowers equipped with platform suspension systems that infringe that patent is affirmed where, in light of likelihood of success, irreparable harm, balance of equities and the public interest, and the content and scope of the injunction, the district court did not abuse its discretion in granting plaintiff's motion for a preliminary injunction.
