OPSENS WILL STRONGLY DEFEND AGAINST ACIST LAWSUIT
QUEBEC CITY, March 9 /CNW Telbec/ - Opsens Inc. (TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE: OPS) ("Opsens") stated today that it will vigorously defend itself against a lawsuit filed by ACIST Medical Systems Inc., a Delaware corporation ("ACIST"). ACIST asks money damages and that Opsens assign or abandon its U.S. Patent Application No. 12/725,951 and International Application No. PCT/CA2010/000396 (the "Applications"), and cease development and testing of its EasyWire device. Opsens believes that the claims against it, alleging improper use of ACIST's confidential information in the Applications and in the EasyWire device, are entirely without merit, and looks forward to proving its case in Court.
