Delaware court dismisses C.R. Bard's patent case against AngioDynamics

AngioDynamics Inc. said the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware dismissed C.R. Bard Inc.'s patent infringement case against the company.

The lawsuit, filed March 2015, claimed certain implantable port products made by AngioDynamics infringed on C.R. Bard's three patents. C.R. Bard, which was acquired by Becton Dickinson and Co. in a $24 billion deal, was seeking unspecified damages and other relief in the case.

AngioDynamics will maintain its focus on delivering products to its customers, the company's President and CEO Jim Clemmer said in a March 8 news release about the matter.

In May 2017, AngioDynamics filed a lawsuit against C.R. Bard for allegedly violating federal antitrust laws by tying the sales of its tip location devices with its own peripherally inserted central catheters.
