LOS ANGELES – Two Irvine companies that develop spinal orthotics allege a North Carolina business has used its patented technology without authorization.
Aspen Medical Products Inc. and W.G. Holdings LLC filed a complaint on Nov. 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Comfortland Medical Inc. and Does 1 through 10 alleging patent infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they suffered damages to their companies as the result of the infringement. The plaintiffs hold Comfortland Medical Inc. and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendant allegedly sells spinal braces that that features similar functionality as plaintiffs' products.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek to enjoin the defendant, damages plus interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Steven J. Goon, Tom Richardson and Benjamin Deming of Rutan & Tucker LLP in Costa Mesa.
