FRANKFURT (Reuters) - A German court has ordered Motorola Deutschland and Motorola Mobility USA to stop selling mobile phones in Germany, which infringe a patent owned by LPKF Laser & Electronics AG, the company said on Wednesday.

The German company said in a statement that the regional court in Mannheim has ruled that the companies infringe LPKF's patent for Laser Direct Structuring, which is used in antennas for mobile phones.
