US Water to appeal recent court ruling on pHytOUT patents

By U.S. Water | June 12, 2018

U.S. Water announced that on May 25, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin overturned a decision by a unanimous Federal Court jury that U.S. Patent Nos. 8,415,137 and 8,609,399 relating to U.S. Water’s pHytOUT deposit control technology were valid. U.S. Water plans to appeal the ruling and proceed to defend these patents. 

“We are obviously disappointed in the court’s decision.  We continue to believe that U.S. Water’s pHytOUT deposit control technology is innovative, as borne out by the significant benefits provided to our customers.” said LaMarr Barnes, CEO of U.S. Water.
