STOP PRESS: KCI negative pressure patent valid and infringed

Here's a treat for PatLit readers: today's ruling by Mr Justice Arnold in KCI Licensing Inc and others v Smith & Nephew plc and others [2010] EWHC 1487 (Pat) -- all 214 paragraphs of it --is not yet available on the BAILII website, but you can read the full text here. In short, the judge found KCI's negative pressure wound drainage patents valid and infringed. I've not yet had a chance to read this decision -- but will revert to it once I've done so.

Does anyone have a copy of the decision of the Landgericht of Mannheim referred to in this decision? The reference is Case No. 7 O 114/9.
