NATICK, Mass., June 15 LAWFUEL – Press Release Service — Boston Scientific
Corporation (NYSE: BSX) announced that the U.S. District Court in Delaware
issued a ruling upholding a July 2005 jury verdict in a patent case against
Johnson & Johnson (J&J) (NYSE: JNJ). The ruling denies J&J’s motion to
overturn the verdict, in which the jury had found that J&J’s Cypher(R)
stent product infringed a Boston Scientific drug coating patent. The jury
had also found the patent to be valid.

“We are very pleased that the Court has upheld the jury’s verdict in
favor of Boston Scientific,” said Paul LaViolette, Boston Scientific Chief
Operating Officer. “This ruling reaffirms the strength and innovation of
our drug-eluting stent technologies.”
