February 11, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

Plug Power Inc. (Latham, NY) reported that by order of the Michigan Circuit Court, all claims filed by DCT Inc. (Sterling Heights, MI) against Plug Power have been dismissed. The legal complaint, filed on January 25, 2000, alleged that Plug Power misappropriated business and technical trade secrets, ideas, and strategies relating to fuel cell systems, and breached certain contractual obligations owed to DCT.

"We are very pleased that the claims against Plug Power have been dismissed," said Roger Saillant, Plug Power president and CEO. "We were always confident that the claims against us lacked merit and this order confirms our belief."
