A U.S. District Court in New York’s Southern District denied all pending motions filed against WHIPgroup client RegenLab USA LLC. The case concerns claims of patent infringement against Estar Technologies and its distributors. RegenLab USA LLC v. Estar Technologies Ltd., 16-CV-08771-ALC (S.D.N.Y.). The Defendants moved for dismissal of RegenLab’s claims for improper venue and lack of personal jurisdiction. The Defendants also recently sought to enjoin RegenLab from asserting its patent rights against the Defendants’ customers and to sever and stay RegenLab’s case against Estar’s distributors. Oral argument was held and the Court found WHIPgroup’s arguments in opposition to these motions persuasive and denied all the Defendants’ motions. The Court also granted RegenLab discovery into the Defendants’ New York activities.
