Rossi Industrial Heat Lawsuit Settled

The comedy of errors known as Andrea Rossi’s lawsuit against Tom Darden and Industrial Heat is over. The jury trial before U.S. District Judge Cecilia M. Altonaga ended after just 48 minutes in court on July 5, 2017.

Rossi and Darden’s attorneys apparently hammered out some sort of agreement and shut down the farce, a post on LENR Forum posted on E-Cat World indicates. This came after a mistrial and a failure to seat a Jury on July 29, 2017. The court apparently took the Fourth of July holiday off then came back and ended the trial.

No details of the settlement are available because Rossi and Industrial Heat have apparently signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA). That means Rossi can post to his Journal of Nuclear Physics blog again but cannot discuss the litigation.

Rossi himself admitted this in a July 5, post to the Journal:

“The terms of the settlement will remain under NDA forever, as per request of the Attorneys of both Parties.

Personally, I am glad to be free to return to work full time for my E-Cat.

I will never anymore talk about the issues of the litigation. They belong to the past. The war is over, now we must build a constructive future.

From now I return to talk with our Readers.

Warm Regards,


My guess is that Rossi and Darden wised up and realized that a trial would be a waste of time and money so they made a sensible settlement. We will not know what that is until their attorneys make a joint statement at some time in the future. Rossi revealed that the General Terms of the settlement will be revealed then.

Rossi is now back at work on his e-cat QuarkX low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) device. Rossi once again promised a public demonstration of his technology within the year but did not give a specific date.

The inventor also announced that he is still planning to manufacture the e-cat in Sweden and the United States. No dates for the beginning of production were announced. It looks as if things are back to normal with Andrea Rossi.

    I would be fascinated to hear a discussion of why anyone believes Rossi at this point. There are legit people investigating LENR. Con men like Rossi make it hard for people who give non main stream science a chance.
