Honeywell, Inc. v. Lithonia Lighting, Inc., 317 F. Supp. 406 (N.D. Ga. 1970) (full-text).

Trial Court Proceedings[]

The court looked skeptically upon plaintiff’s claim of misrepresentation by Honeywell since, during the entire period, plaintiff had three managers in its computer department who were computer experts, though they may not have been as familiar with the computer field as Honeywell.[1]

The court found that the lessee had wrongfully terminated a lease for computer equipment and held that Honeywell was entitled to the net profit it would have realized during the remainder of the contract.[2]
