Click here for claim 1, as reformatted by the parties jointly, with the language of interest highlighted.  The simulation focuses on infringement. The patent has expired but substantial damages are at stake. The (imaginary) accused infringer disputes that the accused device includes element [E] but concedes elements [A]-[D] and [F].  The experts will testify concerning [E] as well as [F], the GTI etalon, as practiced in both the claimed invention and the accused device.

Haney et al. "Dialysis device with air chamber" issued June 6, 2006.
Click here for claim 1, as reformatted by the parties jointly, with the language in dispute highlighted.  The (imaginary) accused device is the Dialysis Beaker X500 manufactured by Innovation Labs.

All simulations will be performed in the Moot Court Room, which is Room 80 in the basement of the classroom wing of Crown (the side closer to the Post Office).  For maps showing parking and pedestrian paths to the law school classroom building, click here.

All simulations will be videotaped. The recordings will probably be available by the end of March.
