Patent Infringement. If damages in the measure recoverable would be adequate and the defendant was in a financial position to pay them, no injunction should normally be granted, however strong the claimant's claim might appear. The question whether a judgment could be satisfied had to be answered not simply by reference to the trading position of a company, but by reference to what the position would be on a balance sheet basis.
