Banner & Witcoff client Kimberly-Clark Worldwide Inc. moves ahead in diaper patent case

July 9, 2013
On July 8, 2013, U.S. District Judge William W. Caldwell of the Middle District of Pennsylvania ruled in favor of firm client Kimberly-Clark Worldwide Inc., and denied a bid by First Quality Baby Products LLC to invalidate on summary judgment two Kimberly-Clark diaper patents. The judge held that First Quality failed to show that the patents covering absorbency technologies for diapers and adult incontinence products were obvious in light of the prior art.
Banner & Witcoff attorneys Marc S. Cooperman, Janice V. Mitrius, Matthew P. Becker, Jason S. Shull, Michael L. Krashin, Katherine L. Fink and Sean J. Jungels represent Kimberly-Clark in this case.
