ITC Administrative Law Judge Grants Motion to Terminates 337 Investigation as to Apex’s Sleep-Disordered Breathing Treatment Products
On July 17, 2013, the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) Administrative Law Judge granted the termination of a 337 investigation of Apex’s breathing treatment system and mask products.
This investigation originated from a filing by ResMed requesting the ITC to investigate whether certain of Apex’s product models for breathing treatment systems and masks infringed ResMed’s patents. The ITC instituted the investigation at the close of this April.
In the order granting Apex’s motion to terminate the investigation, the Administrative Law Judge rejected ResMed’s oppositions and confirmed that Apex’s stipulations completely comply with all Commission rules. The stipulations include that Apex does not admit that its products infringe upon ResMed’s asserted patents.
Apex’s lawful operation in the United States is completely undisturbed. Apex remains focusing on product development and innovation while actively expanding its market worldwide.
