Crocs, Skechers worldwide pat-scrap settles
In a move that will disappoint many patent trial lawyers, shoe maker Crocs Inc and Skechers USA Inc have announced the settlement of all litigation between them in the action brought by Crocs. There's something to disappoint transactional lawyers too: the the settlement terms were not disclosed. The agreement covers all outstanding worldwide litigation and appears to be resulting in Skechers concentrating on its core styles in place of Croc-type molded footwear.
