In August 2006, Dorel Juvenile Group, Inc. ("Dorel") filed a complaint in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana against Lois DiMartinis, a current employee of ours, claiming, among other things, that she breached her non-disclosure obligations by taking confidential information with her when departing employment from Dorel, and that she would inevitably disclose confidential information in the course of performing duties for her new employer, Summer. Dorel, in its complaint, accused us of engaging in a pattern of hiring employees from Dorel for the purpose of obtaining Dorel's confidential information for use in our product designs and business. On October 20, 2006, the court denied Dorel's motion for preliminary injunction, finding that Dorel was not reasonably likely to succeed on the merits of its case. On June 1, 2007, briefs were filed and oral arguments were heard by the Appellate Court in Indiana. In December 2007, we entered into a confidential settlement agreement with Dorel resolving this litigation. The terms of this settlement were not material.
