WHIPgroup was successful in defending Karl Storz against a motion to dismiss filed by Defendant Integrated Medical Systems International (“IMS”). WHIPgroup, on behalf of Karl Storz, had filed suit against IMS alleging that services and products sold by IMS infringed two of Karl Storz’s patents. IMS moved to dismiss the case, arguing there wasn’t enough evidence of infringement in the complaint.

The Court agreed with WHIPgroup’s attorneys by denying IMS’ motion and allowing the case to proceed.
