Long-time rivals St. Jude Medical (NYSE:STJ) and Volcano (NSDQ:VOLC) are looking to push forward on a pair of lawsuits involving trade secrets and patent infringement.

A Delaware court last month entered judgment on a jury verdict in St. Jude's favor, ruling that St. Jude did not infringe on Volcano's fractional flow reserve technology, according to a recent regulatory filing.

It may not be the last word on the lawsuit, which is going on 3 years, as both companies have filed for motions as a matter of law and St. Jude has filed for a new trial regarding its own infringement claims against Volcano.
