Share this story with your network

A federal judge who early last month threw out massive litigation against Medtronic Inc. didn’t disclose that his son’s law firm has long had the medical-device maker as a client.

Judge Richard H. Kyle of the federal district court in Minneapolis said in an interview that he didn’t realize the firm, Fredrikson & Byron, had represented the Minneapolis medical-device maker. Judge Kyle’s son, Richard H. Kyle Jr., is a partner with the firm, which has represented Medtronic on multibillion-dollar deals.
