A California jury has awarded Infra-Comm a $6 million settlement from network giant Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO) in a lawsuit over a breach-of-contract dispute. The firm was a reseller for Cisco.

In an editorial, ChannelWeb calls the verdict .

“A $6 million jury award for a solution provider that alleged networking giant Cisco broke its reseller agreement is a shot across the bow of any vendor that comes to the table with ‘my way or the highway’ reseller contracts or strong arm tactics to unfairly tilt deals in the sales trenches,” the publication said.

The jury after just three hours of deliberation, ChannelWeb reported.
