hammer-719061_1280 (1)

For immediate release:

July 2, 2015 – The recent press release from Cambridge Engineering and RxHeat regarding the settlement with Thermapure is flat wrong; the case settled after Thermapure won two key rulings.  The parties settled the patent infringement lawsuit before trial on terms acceptable to all parties which included a confidentiality agreement not to divulge the terms. The settlement which was reached after Thermapure won its motion for reconsideration on a ruling that Cambridge Engineering and RxHeat could be liable for infringing Thermapure’s 6,327,812 patent through the sale of their Z9000 heaters.  Please see the attached (162) opinion.

Thermapure also obtained a summary judgement against Cambridge Engineering and RxHeat regarding their frivolous counterclaims.  Please see the attached order (188) from the United States District Court for The Northern District of Illinois.
