Levi’s Delays Arbitration in $15M Royalty Dispute

A court ruled that Aqua Dynamics Systems Inc., a water treatment company, cannot yet force Levi’s to arbitrate a $15 million royalty dispute. Aqua Dynamics is looking for compensation for an ozone washing treatment Levi’s has used since 1993.

Levi’s, in turn, filed a lawsuit discrediting Aqua Dynamics’ claims. A California federal judge ruled that Aqua must first demonstrate that it is the owner of the patent, which the company took over, before arbitration can occur.
