Court Thwarts Bio-Rad's Request to Enforce
Settlement with ABI; Firm to Appeal
A US district court has denied Bio-Rad's request to "enforce" a settlement in a patent-infringement suit filed by Applied Biosystems that Bio-Rad lost in April.
Bio-Rad last week said that the US District Court for the District of Connecticut "has denied MJ Research's motion to enforce a settlement agreement," which Bio-Rad said was made on Aug. 29. Bio-Rad acquired MJ Research in August 2004.
