On September 17, 2018, the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota issued an order that (i) vacated a previous order determining that certain claims of U.S. Patent No. RE42,757 (“the ‘757 Patent”) were invalid, and (ii) entered a judgment of non-infringement as to the same claims of the ‘757 Patent. In the underlying case, Spineology, Inc. (“the Plaintiff”) accused Wright Medical Technology, Inc. (“the Defendant”) of infringing certain claims of the ‘757 Patent, which is drawn to an expandable reamer, by making, using, selling, offering for sale, importing and/or exporting its X-REAM® percutaneous expandable reamer product. The case remains pending and is captioned 15-cv-180.
