This is the damages phase of the patent infringement action. ... On June 3, 2010, in Weatherford Canada Ltd v Corlac Inc, 2010 FC 602, the Court found that 937 Patent, relating to seals in stuffing boxes on oil drilling equipment, was valid and had been infringed. The infringers were Corlac Inc, Corlac Equipment Ltd, National Oilwell Inc (now known as National Oilwell Varco Inc), and National Oilwell Canada Ltd. The Court concluded that the Plaintiffs were entitled to an accounting or to damages to be assessed by the Court including claims for exemplary or punitive damages and pre and post-judgment interest as of June 3, 2010. The Plaintiffs elected to recover damages rather than an accounting of profits. .... Therefore, the Court will issue an Order directing that the Defendants pay to the Plaintiffs within 30 days: 1. damages in the amount of $7,915,000; and 2. interest calculated in accord with this Judgment.
