Guidant v. St. Jude

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

Overturned $140 mil. implantable cardiac defibrillator patent infringement damage award to Guidant will likely be appealed, according to St. Jude. Filed by Guidant in November 1996 in Indianapolis federal court, the complaint currently focuses on two Guidant ICD patents ('472 and '288). Judge David Hamilton ruled Feb. 13 that "both patents are invalid," St. Jude says. A jury awarded Guidant the damages in July 2001, after finding that St. Jude infringed the '472 patent, which expired March 4, but that it did not infringe the '288 patent; both had been ruled valid (1"The Gray Sheet" July 9, 2001, In Brief)...
