Philadelphia, PA | January 2021 – RatnerPrestia litigators Christopher Blaszkowski and Andrew Koopman recently prevailed in an inter partes review proceeding in which they represented Petitioner Remediation Products, Inc. The final written decision, which issued on January 15, cancelled every claim of U.S. Patent No. 7,531,709 (“the ‘709 Patent”). The ‘709 Patent “relates to an accelerated dechlorination of subsurface matter by anaerobic microorganisms in conjunction with oxygen scavengers, vitamins, nutrients, and zero valent metals.” The ‘709 Patent was previously reexamined, had been the subject of a prior inter partes review, and has been asserted in district court litigations by Patent Owner Innovative Environmental Technologies, Inc. Chris and Andrew partnered with John Higgins of the Additon, Higgins, and Pendleton firm in this proceeding.
