In a 3-0 decision, the Maryland Court of Special Appeals upheld the Montgomery County Circuit Court’s $309 million jury award for Mirowski Family Ventures LLC.
Stein Sperling commercial litigation attorneys Jeff Schwaber, Deanna Peters and Judy Cornwell served as co-counsel to Williams & Connolly LLP and the Montgomery County-based plaintiff in their 10-count suit against Boston Scientific Corp. (“BSC”), which resulted in a landmark jury award for unpaid royalties and other violations of the law. Boston Scientific’s breach of the parties’ license agreement, relating to the development of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD), included failure to pay royalties, as well as improperly settling joint claims for patent infringement against a third party.
In a published opinion filed last week, the Court of Special Appeals affirmed in all respects the jury’s verdict, and rejected each of Boston Scientific’s arguments on appeal.
The $309 million jury award was named among The National Law Journal’s “Top 100 Verdicts in 2014.”
