U.S. Patent Office nixes Smith & Nephew patents in spat with Hologic

Feb 7, 2014

February 7, 2014 by Brad Perriello The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office nixes 2 patents at issue in Smith & Nephew's long-running infringement battle with Interlace Medical and subsequent acquirer Hologic. The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office dealt a setback to Smith & Nephew (FTSE: SN , NYSE: SNN ) last month when it invalidated claims in a pair of patents at the core of a long-running infringement dispute with Interlace Medical and its subsequent acquirer, Hologic  (NSDQ: HOLX ). Smith & Nephew sued Interlace in 2010, alleging infringement of a pair of patents with the MyoSure fibroid tumor device, and filed against Hologic after the Interlace buyout in January 2011.

Further damages, however, can't yet be decided because the jury's verdict was too vague, according to Judge Rya Zobel of the U.S. District Court for Massachusetts. In October 2013, Hologic  asked a federal judge in Massachusetts to revisit that loss . Last June, Judge Rya Zobel of the U.S. District Court for Massachusetts  upheld that decision  but found that any damages owed by Hologic to the British medical products giant couldn't yet be determined.
