The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is investigating the safety of a helmet worn by a man who fell off a motorcycle during a training exercise in Minnesota.
The agency said the incident happened at the Minnesota State University of Health Sciences Center on Oct. 31.
A woman riding a motorcycle on campus was wearing the helmet, which had a valve to stop the flow of voltage from the helmet to the rider’s body, the EPA said.
The rider suffered a head injury and was taken to the hospital, the agency said.
The EPA said the valve is an important part of the helmet system that stops voltage from leaking through the helmet into the body.
It said it is unclear whether the valve can be used by people without a medical condition to stabilize their voltage.
The EPA has not released a list of possible symptoms.
Anaheim, Calif., Nov. 12, 2017—The United States and Canada announced a $2.3 billion settlement on Friday over allegations of improper use of patents owned by the two companies, according to an agreement reached with Apple Inc. The settlement, which resolves an antitrust suit brought by Apple, was announced in a press release by the U.S. Department of Justice.
The Department of Commerce, in a separate lawsuit, accused the two parties of misleading customers and unfairly charging them to use the patents.
The Justice Department also sued in a federal court in the District of Columbia for alleged antitrust violations.
“This settlement is a significant step toward ensuring the safety and security of our consumers and innovators, and it will improve the ability of companies to compete in the global marketplace,” said U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
“The settlement will provide consumers and businesses with certainty and support for the protection of their intellectual property rights.”
The settlement also provides Apple with a $1 billion settlement with the Department of Energy and $1.3 million with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Justice Department said.
In a statement, Apple said it was pleased to resolve the lawsuit.
