Johnson & Johnson unit’s contact lens does not infringe a patent belonging to Rembrandt Vision Technologies LP. Federal Circuit affirmed a Florida federal jury’s August 2017 ruling in favor of Johnson & Johnson.
The August 2017 trial was the second time a jury has cleared Johnson & Johnson of infringement, after the Plaintiff moved to set aside a 2012 district court win and 2013 Federal Circuit affirmance.
The Federal Circuit reversed in 2016 and remanded the case to district court and, after retrial in August 2017, the jury again returned a verdict of noninfringement in favor of our client, and the Federal Circuit again affirmed that ruling.
