Federal Circuit Upholds Lower Court Decision in Edwards Lifesciences v. CoreValve

Edwards Lifesciences succeeded in its appeal at the Federal Circuit in the lawsuit Edwards Lifesciences v.

The Federal Circuit upheld the District Court’s decision in favor of Edwards Lifesciences and sent the case back to the District Court to reconsider its decision to deny an injunction.  The Federal Circuit’s decision is available here.
