Palo Alto ticks lower following court order in Juniper suit

|About: Juniper Networks (JNPR)|By:, SA News Editor

The court handling Juniper's (JNPR -0.6%) infringement suit against Palo Alto Networks (PANW -0.7%) has ruled Juniper will be able to "introduce evidence of willful blindness" as related to induced infringement, should the jury rule Palo Alto directly infringed Juniper's IP.

In addition, Palo Alto's attempt to make an ensnarement defense has been denied. Markman Advisors states this eliminates one of Palo Alto's defense against the doctrine of equivalents.

Palo Alto's shares have moved moderately lower in response to the order.
