Court reverses part of $371M verdict against Gore: Thomson Reuters
A federal appeals court on Thursday partially reversed a $371.2 million award for C.R. Bard Inc in a long-running patent infringement dispute with W.L. Gore & Associates over tubes that reinforce blood vessels.
The U.S. Federal Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., in February had upheld a 2007 Arizona jury verdict that Gore, the maker of Gore-Tex, willfully infringed a Bard patent through its sale of the vascular grafts. But after Gore appealed, a three-judge panel of the same court reversed part of its decision in a 2-1 ruling on Thursday, sending the case back to the trial court for reconsideration.
