From Times Wire Services

Cook Inc. said it was suing Irvine-based Edwards Lifesciences Corp., alleging patent infringement in Germany.

Bloomington, Ind.-based Cook said Edwards’ recently launched Sapien THV heart valve infringes its German patent.

Cook said it asked the court to issue a cease-and-desist order to prevent Edwards from manufacturing, importing, exporting and selling the device.
