Court dismisses Retractable Technologies' suit against Becton Dickinson

Retractable Technologies (RVP) reports that on August 17, Judge Amos L. Mazzant of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas issued the Court's Final Judgment regarding RTI's suit against Becton, Dickinson and Co. (BDX). The Judgment orders that RTI take nothing in its suit against BD and dismisses the case. The Court was asked to address whether RTI is entitled to an award of BD's profits as an equitable remedy under the Lanham Act. The Court acknowledged in its Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law, also filed on August 17, that BD violated the Lanham Act, but stated that the "previously ordered injunctive relief adequately achieves equity between the parties." The injunctive relief referenced by the Court relates to an earlier court order requiring BD to notify certain persons that its needle sharpness and waste space comparison claims were falsely advertised. RTI is considering its options, which include a motion for a new trial or to amend the judgment and appeal to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. Alternatively, RTI could take no action, which would end the litigation by RTI against BD stemming from a complaint filed in 2007.
