NuGenesis and Scientific Software Settle Out of Court

NEW YORK, Feb. 7 - NuGenesis Technologies and Scientific Software said yesterday that they have resolved their legal disputes out of court.


In July 2001, NuGenesis, based in Westborough, Mass., filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Scientific Software. NuGenesis claimed that the company infringed on one of its patent, which covers the ability of NuGenesis' Scientific Data Management Systems to store and access visual information generated from a laboratory control and analysis program.


In response, Scientific Software, of Pleasanton, Calif., filed a counter lawsuit against NuGenesis a month later, claiming that it did not infringe on the patent and requesting that NuGenesis' patent be declared invalid.
