Zoll Medical Corporation v. Respironics, Inc.C.A. No. 12-1778 – LPS, July 8, 2015

Stark, C. J. Plaintiff’s motion to lift stay following inter partes review is granted.

The IPR is completed and the PTO confirmed the patentability of all but one of plaintiff’s patent claims.  Defendant had previously represented that the IPR proceedings would take only 18 months, and no stay pending appeal was requested at that time. The court declines to stay for perhaps another year while an appeal is filed and decided.
