WHIPgroup successfully defended summary judgment for a patent infringement case before the US International Trade Commission. The Respondents filed a motion for summary judgment of non-infringement based on their proposed claim construction of the term “additive.” The patent at issue is directed to a medical system having only two additives, and the Respondents argued that their system included a third additive in the form of a silicon coating.
