Crestron Countersues Savant

By |


savant_vs_crestron.gifSavant made a big move by filing a lawsuit hours before the start of the 2010 CEDIA Expo. Now, according to TWICE, Crestron has launched their own lawsuit at Savant, charging them with many of the same things that Savant charged Crestron with in the original suit.

Crestron filed the suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, charging that Savant had engaged in "tortuous interference with contract, tortuous interference with prospective business relationship, and unfair and deceptive trade practices."

Crestron claims that Savant is "using its baseless lawsuit against Crestron and its calculated efforts to publicize this lawsuit to enhance Savant's competitive position at Crestron's expense." The company goes on to say that Savant is using "unlawful business practices and tactics to shortcut its success in the marketplace instead of competing on the merits of its products."

Crestron clearly took Savant's lawsuit not only seriously, but personally as they go on to claim that Savant's litigation is "a means of gaining competitive advantage in the automation and control industry" and is "unprecedented and disruptive to the industry."

Now the ball is in Savant's court, so to speak.
