< Back to News Home Court Finds for Alcon in Patent Infringement Case

Posted (02/08/2013) -

On 5th February 2013, in the Patents County Court, London, England, His Honour Judge Birss QC handed down his Judgement in the case of AP Racing Limited vs Alcon Components Limited, case number CC11P3805.

The case concerned claims by AP Racing against Alcon of infringement of AP Racing’s patents GB 2 451 690 and EP (UK) 2 022 999. These patents relate to opposed piston brake calipers such as those presently being sold by the parties for use in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. This includes calipers designed by Alcon and marketed by Brake Parts Inc. under the Raybestos brand with part references PC1106, PC1108, PC1109, PC1110, PC1111, PC1112, and PC1113.

The Judge ruled that EP (UK) 2 022 999 be revoked, and that GB 2 451 690 is invalid. The Judgement may be found at http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWPCC/2013/3.html.

In a subsequent ruling, the Judge also ordered AP Racing to pay costs to Alcon.
