Stay Lifted on Patent Infringement Complaint by Tillotson Corporation Against Top Glove Sdn Bhd and TG Medical Sdn Bhd

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Lexington, MA -- Tillotson Corporation announced today that the stay was lifted on the Patent Infringement complaint that it filed against Top Glove Sdn Bhd and TG Medical Sdn Bhd in the United States District Court for Northern Georgia. This complaint, in which Tillotson seeks damages for infringement of its Nitrile Glove technology, was originally filed in 2007, but had no activity while the International Trade Commission (ITC) investigation was active. With the conclusion of that ITC investigation, the Top Glove companies are now required to answer this complaint by the end of April 2010.

Neil Tillotson and Luc DeBecker developed and patented the Nitrile Glove technology in 1990. The Tillotson patent covers technology related to the production of a synthetic rubber glove that relaxes after being donned and comfortably conforms to the contours of the wearer's hand. The patent was reissued in 1997.
