Medtronic, Inc. (MDT) Sued for Alleged Deceptive Business Practices


12/13/2012 9:03:50 AM

Three men filed a lawsuit against Medtronic on Tuesday in federal court in Minneapolis, alleging the Fridley-based company used bribery and deceptive business practices to implant defective, dangerous defibrillators in tens of thousands of patients across the country. They are seeking class action status. The men -- George Dalton of Alabama, Gary Patterson of Florida and Donald Alexander of Missouri -- originally filed suit in Hennepin County District Court. The case was moved to federal court Tuesday. They are representing themselves. Dalton is seeking "actual damages" of more than $200,000; Alexander is seeking more than $147,000 and Patterson is seeking $80,000. The men also ask that each member of the class be awarded compensatory damages. Christopher Garland, a Medtronic vice president, issued a statement saying: "The claims being asserted were previously resolved in the course of the Sprint Fidelis litigation and Medtronic maintains they are without merit."
