Ormco Corp. has filed an answer and counterclaim in the District of New Jersey alleging that MidAtlantic Ortho infringes U.S. Patent Nos. 7,267,545 (“Self-ligating orthodontic bracket”) and 9,867,680 (“Orthodontic bracket”). Ormco Corp. accuses MidAtlantic Ortho’s FIT.20 orthodontic bracket system of infringing its two patents.
