Patent Group Wins Appeal of $593 Million Jury Verdict

April 5, 2013

On April 4, 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 in Bruce Saffran v. Johnson & Johnson and found that our client did not infringe a doctor’s patent on heart devices. The Federal Circuit found that the trial court erred in its interpretation of the patent in question and that our client was not using the doctor's invention.
