ResMed receives permanent injuction against APEX in Germany ResMed announced it has won a permanent injunction in Germany against Taiwanese medical device manufacturer APEX Medical Corp., prohibiting sales of infringing headgear used on APEX WiZARD 210 and 220 masks. The judgment was entered by the Regional District Court in Munich, is appealable, and applies throughout Germany. The permanent injunction continues a preliminary injunction that was entered by the same court on Nov. 12, 2013. The court rejected APEX's request to stay the injunction and its challenge to the validity of ResMed's patent. The judgment also requires APEX to forfeit its inventory of infringing products, to report on its sales of the infringing products, and to pay damages to ResMed. ResMed has also filed separate patent infringement lawsuits in the same court seeking damages and permanent injunctions to stop infringement of other ResMed patents. The trials of those cases will occur in the fall of 2014.
