Item 8.01 Other Events.
On December 22, 2010, in the previously-disclosed civil suit filed by Eaton Corporation (Eaton) and several Eaton subsidiaries against Triumph Group, Inc. (the Company), certain related subsidiaries and certain employees of the Company and its subsidiaries, the Circuit Court of the First Judicial District of Hinds County, Mississippi entered a final order dismissing with prejudice all of the claims which had been asserted by Eaton. The courts opinion in support of the order of dismissal was filed under seal and therefore may not be disclosed or discussed by the Company. The order of dismissal fully ended the litigation of claims by Eaton in the Circuit Court. On December 28, 2010, Eaton filed a notice of appeal to the Mississippi Supreme Court appealing the order of dismissal and other matters.
The counterclaims of the Company and the other defendants against the Eaton plaintiffs were not affected by the December 22 order and remain pending in the Circuit Court.
Except as specifically set forth above, the Company reaffirms in all material respects the disclosure concerning the Eaton litigation and related proceedings set forth in the Companys Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2010 in Item 3. Legal Proceedings.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
