Thursday, May 18, 2017

SAN DIEGO – ResMed has filed a motion to dismiss a complaint against Fisher & Paykel so that it can refile using new evidence it has gathered that will it a give stronger case, according to a press release. ResMed first lodged its complaint with the International Trade Commission in August 2016. ResMed claims that the New Zealand based Fisher & Paykel’s masks violated its patented technology. “We’re committed to protecting our innovation, which is why we’ve engaged in global legal proceedings with Fisher & Paykel,” said David Pendarvis ResMed’s global general counsel and chief administrative officer in the release. In January, ResMed settled a long-running patent infringement battle with BMC and 3B Medical.
