On June 10, 2015, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled in favor of Raley & Bowick client Kaneka Corporation in its appeal of a the Markman claim construction that was the basis for a summary judgment decision by the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Los Angeles Division. The District Court had dismissed Kaneka’s patent infringement action against various Chinese manufacturers of the dietary supplement coenzyme Q10. Kaneka is the owner of a process patent for manufacturing coenzyme Q10 and has alleged that the defendants’ manufacturing processes infringe Kaneka’s patent. A three member panel of the Federal Circuit unanimously reversed the District Court, adopted the claim construction proposed by Kaneka, and remanded the case for further proceedings. The Federal Circuit’s ruling allows the parties to proceed in the California District Court, and also enables Kaneka to proceed for a trial on a similar infringement action, involving the same patent with different defendants, in the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division.
