United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) Rules in Smith & Nephew's Favor and Confirms Patent Claims Infringed by Arthrex Inc.
Date:3/30/2009

ANDOVER, Mass., March 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) overruled Arthrex's validity challenges to the claims of a medical device patent exclusively licensed to Smith & Nephew (NYSE: SNN; LSE: SN) by Dr. John O. Hayhurst of Portland, Ore.

As part of its attempt to overcome the jury's verdict against it, Arthrex initiated a standard re-examination proceeding with the USPTO to try to declare the patent invalid. The USPTO ruling confirms the validity of the claims of the patent that are infringed by Arthrex.

A jury determined last June that Arthrex Inc. (Naples, Fla.) willfully infringed this patent and awarded Smith & Nephew Endoscopy $14.7 million for infringement through the end of 2005. That amount was later increased by the Court for prejudgment interest and additional damages.
