Court Denies Defendants’ Motion to Stay for Inter Partes Review

January 7, 2015 – Judge Harry Lee Hudspeth denied Defendants Tissue Transplant Technology, Ltd. and Human Biologics of Texas, Ltd.’s motion for immediate stay pending inter partes review of the patents-in-suit. The court denied the motion because the undue prejudice to plaintiff, lack of potential simplification of issues, and stage of the case weighed against a stay. The case was brought by Plaintiff MiMedx Group, Inc. for infringement of U.S. Patent Nos. 8,597,687 and 8,709,494 relating to tissue grafts for medical use. The case is pending in the Western District of Texas and captioned MiMedx Group, Inc. v. Tissue Transplant Technology, Ltd., 5-14-cv-00719.
