On January 7, 2015, the district court for the Northern District of California issued two decisions, one denying a motion filed by the Plaintiff, AngioScore, Inc., and the other denying a motion filed by the Defendants, TriReme Medical, Inc. et al. In the first order, the court denied Plaintiff’s motion to amend their infringement contentions because the court did not find the Plaintiff to be diligent in filing the motion. In the second order, the court denied Defendants’ motion requesting leave to file a second motion for summary judgment of non-infringement. The case involves Plaintiff’s patent infringement suit, which was filed on June 29, 2012 and asserts that the Defendants infringed U.S. Patent Nos. 7,691,119 and 7,931,663, owned by the Plaintiff, and drawn to balloon catheters with non-deployable stents. This case remains pending and is captioned 4-12-cv-03393.
