Successful Appeal of a $593 Million Jury Verdict

In April 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit reversed a $593 million jury verdict from the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas and found that our client, a Fortune 50 medical device manufacturer, did not infringe a doctor’s patent on heart devices. The Federal Circuit found that the district court erred in construing two claim terms and that under the correct construction our client was entitled to judgment of noninfringement as a matter of law. The U.S. Supreme Court then denied the doctor’s petition for a writ of certiorari in January 2014.
