Modern Healthcare

Media Mentions

February 17, 2016

Bass, Berry & Sims attorneys Terry Clark and Janelle Waack provided comment for an article in Modern Healthcare outlining the upcoming healthcare industry cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. The article speculates how these cases will be handled in light of Justice Scalia's recent passing. Terry and Janelle commented on the consolidated cases of Halo Electronics Inc. v. Pulse Electronics Inc. and Stryker Corporation v. Zimmer, examining whether a medical device company is eligible to receive up to triple damages for patent infringement. As Terry and Janelle point out in the article, this consolidated case, "could have a big impact on patent law and influence how companies ensure they don't get pegged for willful infringement on another company's patent."

The full article, "Healthcare Cases Arrive Soon for Eight-member Supreme Court," was published by Modern Healthcare on February 16, 2016, and is available online.

Terry and Janelle's comments were also included in the article, "Device Patent Cases Next on Supreme Court Docket," published by Modern Healthcare on February 20, 2016, also available online.
