Supreme Court will not hear appeal in ETHICON ENDO-SURGERY, INC. v. COVIDIEN, INC.
In refusing to hear the case, the high court left in place a December 2014 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit that threw out a judge’s finding that Ethicon had infringed upon Covidien's patents for surgical cutting tools. Covidien is owned by Medtronic Plc.
