Edwards Lifesciences LLC v Boston Scientific Scimed Inc.

Patent – Infringement. The Patents Court ruled on an application by the claimant for revocation, and a claim by the defendant for infringement, of two patents owned by the defendant concerning an invention for a repositionable heart valve. The court held that one of the patents was invalid on the ground that it lacked inventive step, and that the other patent was valid and had been infringed by the claimant's product.
