Positec Power Tools (Europe) Ltd and others v Husqvarna AB

Disclosure and inspection of documents – Application for disclosure. The Patents Court considered the issue of disclosure in a dispute relating to a guidance system for a robotic lawnmower. It held that, applying the correct approach under the CPR as it currently stood, an order for standard disclosure, or an order for issue based disclosure including the issue of obviousness, would not be in accordance with the overriding objective in the case.
