SANTA MONICA, CA, July 15, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Clariti Eyewear, Inc., a California-based distributor of eyewear frames, was recently awarded a victorious ruling from the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Clariti had been sued by Aspex/Contour in March 2007 for purportedly infringing two patents for magnetic clip-on eyewear, held under license by Aspex.Clariti markets and distributes AirMag, an auxiliary sun lens that magnetically attaches to a spectacle frame. On May 24, 2010 the federal appeals court upheld the lower court's dismissal of Apex's lawsuit against Clariti Eyewear.
Dominique Yonemoto, Clariti's President, said, "We are very gratified that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed the lower court ruling. The decision is a vindication of our long stated position that our AirMag brand magnetic eyewear cannot be held to infringe Aspex's patents."
Clariti initially was granted summary judgment by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, which dismissed the case by holding that Aspex was equitably stopped from pursuing their infringement claims against Clariti. The federal appeals court affirmed that ruling.
