Appellate Court Decides in Favor of Fenwal
Date:6/2/2010

LAKE ZURICH, Ill., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit decided today in favor of Fenwal on a patent lawsuit brought by Haemonetics Corporation against Fenwal and Baxter Healthcare Corporation in 2005, Fenwal announced today.  The decision vacates the January 2009 U.S. District Court for Massachusetts verdict against Fenwal as well as the related damages award and injunction.

In its decision today, the U.S. Court of Appeals agreed with Fenwal and reversed the lower court's definition of "centrifugal unit," a central issue in the case.  The appeals court remanded the case to the district court for further proceedings consistent with the appellate court's decision.

"This decision brings us meaningfully closer to putting this litigation behind us and assuring blood centers of continued supply of Alyx® kits," said Dean Gregory, Fenwal senior vice president of Commercial Operations.  "Our priority from the beginning has been to make sure we support our customers in ensuring a safe and available blood supply as we defend ourselves against unwarranted claims.  I want to thank the many blood centers who stood by us in so many ways as we have worked through the legal process."
