LOS ANGELES -- In the largest patent-infringement verdict ever, Litton Industries won $1.2 billion in Los Angeles federal court yesterday on allegations that Honeywell Inc. stole its technology for coating mirrors used in aircraft navigation systems.Litton officials said they believed the award would largely stand against legal challenges, though U.S. District Judge Mariana Pfaelzer, who heard the case, must still rule on Honeywell's assertion that Litton improperly obtained the patent.Honeywell General Counsel Edward D. Grayson said he was "outraged" by the verdict and said subsequent rulings or appeals might eliminate the award altogether.

Prokofiev, like Shostakovich, hit the music world early on with a burst of precocity and went on to achieve a remarkable level of profundity. Last night, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra offered an incisive look at both qualities. Like last week's program, which included Shostakovich's Symphony No. 5, this one, devoted to Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 2 and Symphony No. 5, was to have been conducted by BSO music director Yuri Temirkanov. He remains in St. Petersburg, recuperating from a persistent case of the flu. But, also like last week's program, effectively led by James Judd, this one had a worthy substitute on the podium in Andrew Litton.

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court, dividing 5-4, narrowed significantly yesterday the legal duty of companies to let an arbitrator settle disputes with workers that come up after a union contract expires.A company need not live up to a promise under the old contract to arbitrate all disputes, the court majority declared. If a disagreement with workers or their union does not involve worker rights that are clearly protected by the contract -- rights that cannot be changed by management alone -- it does not have to be arbitrated, the court said.

Mr. Walter's ouster has been widely expected since October, when the board placed him on leave and dismissed all but one member of his staff because of its dissatisfaction with how the center was being managed.

Black & Decker Corp. yesterday said it would sell its defense-related PRC Inc. to Litton Industries Inc. by next month and use the $425 million it will get to reduce a debt load that has been a nagging problem since its 1989 acquisition of Emhart Corp.PRC, which came with the deal when Black & Decker bought Emhart for its Kwikset lock and Price Pfister faucet units, had been offered for sale twice before.The Towson company canceled plans to auction PRC privately in 1990 and canceled a planned initial public offering of PRC in 1992, both after the company failed to command a price Black & Decker would accept.
