Weight loss: GI Dynamics, W.L. Gore settle patent beef
GI Dynamics and W.L. Gore & Assoc. settle their long-standing patent beef over GID's EndoBarrier weight loss device.
Gore filed the lawsuit in 2010, alleging that it was the co-inventor and co-owner of GI Dynamics' patents, including the latter's flagship EndoBarrier gastrointestinal liner. GI Dynamics filed a countersuit later that year, alleging misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of confidence, breach of contract, unjust enrichment, misrepresentation and unfair and deceptive trade practices.
