Vonage Barred in Verizon Lawsuit From Signing Up New Customers

April 6 (Bloomberg) -- A federal judge barred Vonage Holdings Corp. from signing up new customers while it appeals a ruling that it infringed three Verizon Communications Inc. patents.
U.S. District Judge Claude Hilton in Virginia federal court today agreed to stay an order banning Vonage's use of Verizon technology that lets customers make Internet calls to standard phone lines. He put his order on hold while the Internet telephone service provider appeals the ban, known as an injunction.
The case is Verizon Services Corp. v. Vonage Holdings, 06- cv-682, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Virginia.
