Follow-up on Mitel's patent infringement lawsuit

ShoreTel has come back strong behind a successful IPO. Not only has it launched a counter claim alleging that Mitel has infringed its patents, but also has filed claims of damages up to $10 million and injunction on Mitel for making false or misleading statement during ShoreTel's run up to an IPO.

ShoreTel claims that Mitel's ICP 3300 infringes on its patent on VoIP traffic through a firewall. I have noted in the past that Mitel's actions were in poor taste.
