J-Channel Industries Corp.has entered into a settlement agreement with Woodgrain Millwork Inc. and The Windsor Window Company Inc., regarding JCIC’s patented J-Channel Window Frame Construction technology.

“We have now entered into 31 J-Channel agreements since we started this assertion campaign back in August of 2013,” says Robert Berman, president and CEO of J-Channel’s parent company, ITUS Corp. “The remaining defendants from our lawsuits are Clayton Homes and its supplier Kinro Manufacturing, which is owned by Clayton. About a month ago, the Tennessee District Court entered its Scheduling Order, allowing for the remaining lawsuits to proceed, and a claims construction hearing is currently scheduled for July 14, 2015.”

The agreement resolves a patent infringement lawsuit, which will be dismissed.

In November, a trade coalition of 14 vinyl extruders and window manufacturers reached a settlement with J-Channel, bringing their patent challenge to a conclusion.
