Jury Awards $12.2M To Surgery Tube Co. In False Ad Row
By Cara Salvatore (April 12, 2017, 6:24 PM EDT) -- A Delaware federal jury awarded $12.2 million on Tuesday to surgery-device maker Lexion Medical LLC, including $10 million in punitive damages, agreeing with Lexion that rival SurgiQuest Inc. committed false advertising in their fight over tubes used in laparoscopic procedures.
SurgiQuest had sued Lexion in Delaware federal court in March 2014 in connection with a SurgiQuest laparoscopy system called AirSeal. Lexion's rival devices are called Insuflow and Synergy. All three devices facilitate the injection of gas into a patient's body between the abdominal wall and the organs that are being worked on, which gives the surgeon more maneuvering room.
