RMS Medical Products Receives Another Favorable Court Ruling
CHESTER, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Repro Med Systems, Inc. dba RMS Medical Products (OTCQX: REPR) (“RMS Medical” or “the Company”) today announced that on August 30, 2019 the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (Case No. 1:18-cv-05880-LGS) issued a decision granting RMS Medical’s motion for summary judgement of non-infringement against EMED Technologies (“EMED”) U.S. Patent 9,808,576 (“576 Patent”) and dismissed the case with prejudice.
On November 7, 2017, EMED filed this case in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas claiming patent infringement of the ‘576 Patent by the Company’s needle sets and seeking unspecified monetary damages. The case was later transferred to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and is one of several pending between RMS Medical and EMED.
“We are very pleased with the decision of U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, which confirms our belief that EMED’s infringement claim was without merit,” said Don Pettigrew, President and CEO of RMS Medical. “This ruling is the second consecutive favorable judgement that we have received regarding our ongoing litigation with EMED.”
On June 28, 2019, the United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Texas dismissed with prejudice EMED’s case on an earlier issued patent against RMS Medical and awarded court costs to RMS Medical. Subsequent to the Texas ruling, RMS Medical authorized its legal counsel to pursue recovery of legal fees from EMED associated with the Texas case.
