Allied Orthopedic Apps. Inc. v. Tyco Health Care Group LP, No. 08-56314

In an antitrust action claiming that plaintiffs overpaid for defendant's pulse oximetry sensors because defendant used improper marketing agreements and made its sensors incompatible with generic products, summary judgment for defendant is affirmed where: 1) there was no evidence that defendant foreclosed competition in a substantial share of the sensor market; and 2) the undisputed evidence showed that defendant's patented sensor design was an improvement over the previous design.
