St. Jude v. Guidant

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

Proceedings begin Aug. 10 to review claims that Guidant Cardiac Pacemakers Inc.' s Vigor pacemakers and Ventak Mini implantable cardioverter defibrillators infringe U.S. patents held by St. Jude's Pacesetter division, St. Jude reports May 8. Filed May 3, 1996, the suit seeks an order permanently enjoining CPI from infringing three separate patents, as well as damages, pre and post-judgment interest and costs ("The Gray Sheet" May 13, 1996, I&W-7). St. Jude also makes public a May 4 federal appeals court decision reversing a February 1997 federal district court ruling that had denied a St. Jude request to arbitrate a dispute with Guidant regarding St. Jude's $115 mil. acquisition of Telectronics Group. Guidant asserts that the deal violates its contractual and licensing rights
