ME2C® Environmental Announces Court Approval to Proceed with Litigation Claims Against Refined Coal Entities
Response from the U.S District Court in Delaware Allows Litigation Proceedings to Move Forward
CORSICANA, TX, May 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (OTCQB: MEEC) ("ME2C Environmental" or the “Company”), a leading environmental technologies firm, announced today that on May 20, 2021, a U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge for the District of Delaware issued a Report and Recommendation that the pending patent litigation commenced in 2019 should be allowed to move forward against 16 key refined coal process defendants named in such lawsuit.
“We are extremely pleased with the Court’s recommendation against those entities whom we believe have been infringing on our patented mercury capture technologies since the inception of the refined coal program,” said Richard MacPherson, CEO of ME2C Environmental. “The defendants in this case tried unsuccessfully to shut this case down altogether and deny us our day in court at trial but have failed.”
“Coupled with the success we have already achieved in the patent litigation with each of the four major utility defendants named in such lawsuit, the strategic enhancements that ME2C Environmental has made in other areas of our business – from strengthening our balance sheet to removing debt and developing new technologies for vertical growth markets – allows our shareholders to finally realize the true value of our patented technologies,” concluded MacPherson.
