Federal Judge Stays Patent Dispute Pending Outcome Of Swiss Arbitration

SAN FRANCISCO - After finding that a company lacked standing to file a declaratory judgment action in relation to a patent dispute, a California federal judge on Jan. 17 stayed part of the case pending the outcome of a Swiss arbitration and dismissed certain claims for lack of jurisdiction (Cepheid v. Roche Molecular Systems Inc., et al., No. C-12-4411, N.D. Calif.; 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 7446).
