Among other things, the complaint seeks a declaration that Spectra-Physics` rights under the technology agreement are in full force and effect and that Spectra-Physics is entitled to damages for breach of that agreement by SDL. The suit also requests a court order requiring SDL to turn over to Spectra-Physics all SDL technology subject to the agreement.
