The AmLaw Litigation Daily Highlights ‘Major Post-Trial Win’ for AngioDynamics

June 14, 2023

The AmLaw Litigation Daily recognized Cadwalader in its weekly “Litigators of the Week” roundup, acknowledging the firm’s “major post-trial win for AngioDynamics Inc. in a long-running patent fight with CR Bard Inc. over vascular access ports.” The story noted that “U.S. District Senior Judge Joseph Bataillon of the District of Nebraska, sitting in Delaware, … overturned a blanket verdict of willful infringement for Bard and the jury’s rejection of AngioDynamics’ invalidity and infringement defenses from last year. In particular, the judge found Bard’s patent claims invalid because they were anticipated by multiple pieces of prior art, including Bard’s and AngioDynamics’s own existing products. The win marked the first time since 2019 that a judge in Delaware has granted judgment as a matter of law to set aside a jury verdict and invalidate patent claims.” The Cadwalader team representing AngioDynamics included Intellectual Property partners Danielle Tully and John Moehringer, special counsel Michael Powell, associates Dash Cole, John Augelli, Catherine Taylor, Deanna Thompson, Jenn Rabbino, Michael Glenn, and Tyler Ricker and senior staff attorney Jess Talar.
