Medtronic whistleblower lawsuit to play out in court: 3 insights

Spinal Tech

A judge ruled a former Medtronic's whistleblower lawsuit will go to trial, despite the company's efforts to have the case dismissed, according to Reuters.

Here are three insights:

1. The former employee is accusing Medtronic of being involved in a nationwide scheme that paid kickbacks to provides who implanted their devices.

2. Medtronic filed contention for the former employee to be barred from moving forward with the case because the allegations were already raised in earlier whistleblower cases.

3. A U.S. federal judge rejected Medtronic's efforts, allowing the case to proceed.
