BOSTON SCIENTIFIC WINS APPEAL IN PATENT INFRINGEMENT CASE AGAINST JOHNSON & JOHNSON IN THE NETHERLANDS
Boston Scientific recently announced that a Dutch appeals court overturned a
lower court ruling and reinstated an injunction against the manufacture, use
or sale in the Netherlands of six Johnson & Johnson products that were found
to infringe a Boston Scientific balloon catheter patent. The infringing products
are the Cypher Raptor, the Cypher Select, the Bx Velocity Raptor, the Bx Sonic,
the U-Pass, and the Aqua T3 and are manufactured by Johnson & Johnson's
Cordis subsidiary in the Netherlands.
