By: Dan Gelinas, Published on Aug 13, 2018

Nortek and SDS legal battle continues. As IPVM reported, SDS sued Nortek alleging bribery and antitrust violation. However, Wave fired back at SDS, claiming the plaintiff was just "desperate" and could not compete.

Now, Nortek has sued SDS for non-payment and unjust enrichment, with both parties squaring off for a longer battle. Inside, this note, we examine these legal filings and the issues at stake.
