    • The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California rules in favor of Spectranetics (SPNC +0.9%) subsidiary AngioScore in its lawsuit seeking damages from former board member Eitan Konstantino for breach of fiduciary duty. The Court found that Mr. Konstantino did, indeed, breach his fiduciary duty and two companies he founded, TriReme Medical and Quattro Vascular, aided and abetted the breach. In addition, a third company he founded, QT Vascular, is liable for the acts of TriReme and Quattro.
    • The Court awarded AngioScore $20.034M plus disgorgement from Mr. Konstantino of all the benefits he accrued from his breach, including amounts he received for assigning his intellectual property rights to the Chocolate balloon catheter, royalties on past and future sales of the Chocolate balloon and all of his shares and options in QT Vascular. Under the indemnification agreement between AngioScore and Mr. Konstantino, AngioScore will seek to recover attorney fees and costs previously advanced to Mr. Konstantino.
    • The dispute arose from Mr. Konstantino's development of the Chocolate balloon catheter via companies he formed in 2009, three years after leaving AngioScore in 2006. AngioScore claimed that it owned the patents covering the product.
