Mass. Court rules in favor of Volcano over St. Jude subsidiary
The Superior Court of Massachusetts has ruled against LightLab Imaging, a subsidiary of St. Jude Medical, in the company’s trade secret case against intravascular ultrasound technology provider Volcano and its subsidiary, Axsun Technologies.

On Oct. 6, the court rejected LightLab's claims for protection of five alleged trade secrets relating to laser technologies and denied all of LightLab's requests for permanent injunctions in a 16-page decision, according to San Diego-based Volcano.

The final ruling followed a two-week trial on five trade secret claims alleged by LightLab, and a trial on the remaining trade secret claims has not yet been scheduled, said Volcano.
