Technology Research Corp. Sued By Tower Manufacturing Corp. For Alleged Patent Infringement

CLEARWATER, Fla.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—May 16, 2006— Technology Research Corporation (TRC), (NASDAQ: TRCI), announced today that it would vigorously defend itself against patent infringement claims recently made by Tower Manufacturing Corporation against TRC in the United States District Court for The District of Rhode Island. Tower alleges infringement of its patent on a "Mini Appliance Current Interrupter" and seeks an injunction and monetary damages.

TRC believes that the allegations are without merit and that the suit was filed in direct response to TRC's August 4, 2005 patent infringement lawsuit against Tower Manufacturing Corporation in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida. TRC alleges that Tower infringes TRC's United States Patent No. 6,292,337 covering LCDI technology in that suit.
