Arnold & Porter Secures $158 Million Jury Verdict for Boston Scientific in Patent Litigation

June 15, 2023

Arnold & Porter secured a $158 million litigation win for longtime client Boston Scientific. The case began in 2015 when Boston Scientific sued Cook Medical for patent infringement relating to endoscopic clips for the GI tract. The case was put on hold for many years pending Patent Office challenges from Cook. The litigation ultimately resumed with a seven-day jury trial commencing in Indianapolis on May 30, 2023. On Wednesday, June 7, the jury returned a verdict entirely in our client’s favor, including finding that Cook willfully infringed the asserted patents and awarding over $158 million in damages. The trial and patent office team included partners Matt Wolf, Jennifer Sklenar, Marc Cohn, Stanton Jones, and David Caine, counsel Assad Rajani and Nick Nyemah, senior associates William Louden, William Young, and Carson Anderson, associates Tom Carr, Natalie Steiert, Estayvaine Bragg, and Elizabeth Denning, litigation specialist Monica Biswas, and legal secretary Dawna Peich.
