Firm Scores Jury Win in Patent Trial

June 5, 2012

A Florida federal jury has ruled in favor of our client finding that two lines of its contact lenses do not infringe a patent covering a type of soft contact lens that can be worn for extended periods of time. A U.S. District Judge entered final judgment following the jury’s verdict for our client. As an alternative basis for the judgment, the Judge also found that our client was entitled to judgment as a matter of law based on the Plaintiff's failure to prove infringement as a result of the Court's decision to strike the Plaintiff's expert's testimony on an element of the claim due to the expert's "abrupt and still unexplained implosion" on cross-examination.
