On Wednesday, a federal jury in the Eastern District of Texas gave a big win to Sam Baxter of Dallas-based McKool Smith, awarding his client, Medtronic, $250 million in a patent infringement case against Boston Scientific. Howrey represented Boston Scientific.

The suit, filed in March 2006, claimed that certain Boston Scientific balloon catheters and stents infringed four Medtronic patents.

But the jury ruled Boston Scientific had infringed the remaining three patents and threw out Medtronic’s invalidity argument.
