Litigation Perspective

Arista today also commented on the investigations initiated by the International Trade Commission (ITC) in response to Cisco’s two ITC complaints. Arista believes that the complaints lack merit and Cisco’s unorthodox methods of publicizing them suggest a deliberate effort by Cisco to use the courts to gain a marketing opportunity.

“The Commission institutes an investigation in response to virtually every complaint that is filed. Thus, the decision to institute based upon Cisco’s complaints is an expected procedural event,” said Marc Taxay, Vice President and General Counsel for Arista Networks. “Naturally, we will aggressively defend against Cisco’s allegations and look forward to presenting our case to the Commission.”

Arista also responded to a decision by the ITC Administrative Law Judge holding that the two investigations will proceed separately in parallel rather than as one consolidated case. Mr. Taxay added that “issues relating to scheduling and case management are routine and administrative matters.”
