Case No: HT-12-169
In the: High Court of Justice, Queens Bench Division, Technology & Construction Court, Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, London, WC2A 2LL.
Date: 1st August 2014
Before: MR JUSTICE AKENHEAD
WEATHERFORD GLOBAL PRODUCTS LIMITED (Claimant) and HYDROPATH HOLDINGS LIMITED (Defendant) and CLEARWELL INTERNATIONAL LIMITED (Third Party) and MSL OILFIELD SERVICES LIMITED (Fourth Party) and MARTIN CLARK (Fifth Party) and PAOLO LAURETTI (Sixth Party)
Mr Justice Akenhead in his judgement remarked:
“In contradistinction, I found Dr Brown, both in his report and in his oral evidence to be helpful and lucid and logical. In effect his conclusion was that there was nothing in the circuit diagrams which could or should give rise to an inference that they were copied from those upon which the Clearwell Product was based”.
“Overall, Dr Brown’s evidence was to the effect that the circuit diagrams on the Clearwell and Clearwell R products were just “run of the mill” circuit diagrams containing nothing extraordinary or confidential and the fact that they were similar did not mean that one was copied from the other, as he explained in cross-examination. I accept that evidence as it is obviously right, because Dr Brown was convincing and because Dr Ford was unconvincing”.
