McAndrews Shields Client Cardinal Health from Patent Infringement Charge by Kimberly-Clark

Date: April 16, 2013 || Client Successes

In Kimberly-Clark v. Cardinal Health, Civ. Action No. 11-1228-RGA (D. Del. 2013), a patent case relating 
to surgical sterilization wraps, McAndrews' client and defendant Cardinal Health (NYSE: CAH) resolved 
its dispute against Kimberly-Clark without incurring a costly litigation and on favorable terms. McAndrews 
analogized Cardinal Health to a single folded sheet of stationery (in contrast to the required two sheets 
of the patent): "You don't get two sheets of stationery by folding a single sheet in half." After McAndrews' 
attorneys argued Cardinal's claim construction position, the case against Cardinal was dismissed with 
prejudice by stipulation.
