A Texas court denies Vascular Solutions' attempt to dismiss federal lawsuit over alleged illegal marketing of Vari-Lase varicose vein treatment devices. Minnesota medical device maker Vascular Solutions (NSDQ:VASC) wasn't able to dodge a federal off-label marketing lawsuit over its Vari-Lase varicose vein treatment devices, the company revealed in its latest financial report. A Texas court ruled last month against Vascular Solutions' motion to dismiss a U.S. Attorney's Office complaint, which late last year was tacked on to a larger whistleblower lawsuit over the company's marketing activities.
