Sleep diagnostic medical devices firm Nox Medical has obtained a permanent injunction against Natus Neurology.
On June 5, 2018, Judge Richard G. Andrews of the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware issued a permanent injunction against Natus and anyone acting in active concert or participation with it from making, using, selling or offering to sell the Natus XactTrace Single Use Pre-Sized RIP Belt that Natus admitted infringes Nox’s patent in the United States.
Natus is also prohibited from importing the infringing belt into the United States.
Also on 5 June, Nox Medical filed a motion asking Judge Andrews to treble the damages awarded by the jury and to require Natus to pay Nox Medical’s attorneys’ fees.
If granted, these motions will significantly increase the amount Natus will have to pay Nox. Briefing is scheduled to be completed in July, 2018.
Nox Medical CEO Petur Mar Halldorsson said: “One of our goals when we began this litigation was to obtain a permanent injunction against Natus, and now we have achieved that goal.
“We have always believed in the value of our innovations and that the legal system would protect our intellectual property, and the permanent injunction confirms our belief in our technology and the patents that cover it.”
