A consent judgment in favor of MegaDyne Medical Products Inc. of Draper against a St. Petersburg, Fla., company over a patent infringement has been entered in U.S. District Court for Utah.

Harold G. Christensen and Rodney R. Parker, attorneys from the law firm of Snow, Christensen & Martineau, said the consent judgment reaffirms MegaDyne's patents on a coated electrosurgical device and said competing coated products of Aaron Medical Industries infringed on the patent.The court approved payment to MegaDyne for an undisclosed amount and prohibited Aaron from manufacturing, using, selling or otherwise disposing of electrical surgical instruments infringing on MegaDyne's patent for the life of the patent.

Aaron also was ordered to suspend sales of any other kind of coated electrodes until after Aug. 1, 1998.
