Liberty Ammunition Wins $15M+ in Damages from Government

Bradenton-based ammunition manufacturer Liberty Ammunition has won $15.6M in damages stemming from a patent infringement lawsuit against the US government. The suit was originally filed against the Department of Defense in 2011, claiming that the Army used Liberty's IP related to copper-core, steel-tipped bullets to produce enhanced performance rounds for military rifles. The government will also be required to pay a 1.4 cent royalty on every bullet it purchases and receives for use through 2027 when Liberty's patents expire.
