WHIPgroup successfully opposed two motions brought against its client Karl Storz Endoscopy-America, Inc. (“KSEA”) by STERIS Instrument Management Services, Inc. (“STERIS-IMS”). STERIS-IMS sought to extend fact discovery in the long-running patent infringement case to take depositions of two German inventors. KSEA argued that STERIS-IMS had not shown diligence and instead waited until the end of fact discovery to raise the issue. The Court agreed with KSEA’s argument and found that STERIS-IMS had shown no reason for seeking additional discovery at this late stage. The Court denied STERIS-IMS’ motion to extend fact discovery as well as its motion for letter of request under the Hague Convention.
