Gulfstream Appeal Denied on Camp Systems Suit
The U.S. Court of Appeals, 11th Circuit, on November 8 denied Gulfstream’s petition to appeal a judge’s decision in its lawsuit against Camp Systems International. On September 27, U.S. District Court judge Avant Edenfield ruled against Gulfstream’s petition for reconsideration in its long-running lawsuit accusing Camp Systems of infringing on Gulfstream’s maintenance manual copyrights and trademarks. The first ruling against Gulfstream occurred on April 18. Gulfstream declined to comment on the most recent ruling, citing ongoing legal proceedings. Meanwhile, Camp Systems has offered to work with Gulfstream and pay for access to maintenance manuals to use in its maintenance-tracking service and provide component reliability reports to Gulfstream, but the Savannah, Ga.-based OEM has refused to work with Camp Systems, according to company president Ken Gray.
