Globus Medical won’t be deposed in Texas-based patent infringement lawsuit

PHILADELPHIA – An Audubon-based medical device manufacturer will not be forced to provide documents or give deposition testimony in a patent infringement lawsuit originating in federal court in Texas.

In January, Globus Medical, Inc., a company that produces musculoskeletal implants to aid patients recovering from spinal injuries, received a subpoena from a Hawaii-based physician named Dr. Mark Barry, in his patent infringement litigation against Medtronic, Inc. of Dallas. Globus is not a direct party to that action.

Barry filed suit against Medtronic in February 2014, alleging the company’s products infringed on patents he licensed to competitor Biomet, Inc. to manufacture a spinal deformity treatment device, while Medtronic believes Barry’s patents are invalid.
