CIBA Vision Corporation will not be held in contempt of court for violating an agreement not to print statements comparing its product with Johnson & Johnson’s contact lenses, a federal judge has ruled.

Citing King v. Allied Vision, Ltd., 65 F.3d. 1051, a decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, Southern District Judge Laura Taylor Swain noted that an order of contempt is “a potent weapon and is warranted only where the moving party establishes by clear and convincing evidence that the alleged contemnor violated [an] edict.”
