Alphapointe Declaratory Judgment Transferred to North Carolina

May 26, 2017 – A judge in the Western District of Missouri denied Alphapointe’s request for declaratory judgment of non-infringement of two of Composite Resources, Inc.’s patents, U.S. Patent Nos. 7,842,067 and 7,892,253, both titled “Tourniquet and method of use.”  A patent infringement claim had been filed by Composite Resources in the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina on February 16, 2017, and Alphapointe was added as a party-defendant on February 22, 2017.  Because the North Carolina case had been filed before Alphapointe’s declaratory judgment action, the court transferred the current case, 4:17-cv-00129, to the Western District of North Carolina to be consolidated with the pending North Carolina action.
