MMRGlobal Says It Will Refile Patent Lawsuit Against WebMD

Following a February filing of a patent infringement lawsuit by MMRGlobal against WebMD (NASDAQ: WBMD  ) , the two sides agreed in June to try and resolve the matter outside of the courtroom. However, MMR said today that after investing a total of "nearly eight months in good faith negotiations with WebMD," it has decided to refile the suit.

The original suit alleged that WebMD infringed on MMR patents involving its personal health record (PHR) and related technologies. MMR said it has since received another patent it claims WebMD may be infringing upon, and intends to include it in the soon-to-be refiled lawsuit.

MMRGlobal said in its press release that "the door will always be open to a fair negotiated resolution."

In response to a request for statement, WebMD said, "We believe the plaintiff's claims are without merit and we intend to vigorously defend against them."
