Judge Richard G. Andrews recently denied all post-trial motions in a dispute over patented medical devices. St. Jude Medical Cardiology Division, Inc., et al. v. Volcano Corp., C.A. No. 10-631-RGA (D. Del. Aug. 22, 2013). The Court held separate trials on the patents asserted by the plaintiffs and the defendant, with the jury finding in relevant part that (1) defendant did not infringe the asserted claims of plaintiffs’ U.S. Patents No. 6,112,598 or 6,248,083; (2) defendant proved by clear and convincing evidence that plaintiffs’ U.S. Patents No. 5,983,624 and 6,196,989 are invalid as anticipated and obvious; and (3) plaintiffs did not infringe defendant’s U.S. Patent No. 6,976,965 under the doctrine of equivalents. The parties filed a total of six post-trial motions, but the Court denied each, finding that the evidence put before the jury was sufficient to sustain the verdicts.
