WASHINGTON, April 3 (Yonhap) -- A U.S. appeals court on Thursday overturned a 2012 verdict against Kolon Industries Inc. of South Korea that awarded DuPont Co. $919.9 million in damages.

DuPont, the largest U.S. chemical firm by market value, has alleged its South Korean rival stole some trade secrets for Kevlar, a fiber used to make tires, fiber-optic cables and bullet-proof vests.
