On June 3, 2011, Linda Miller Savitt and Linda B. Hurevitz received a defense verdict in Michael Acevedo v. Biosense Webster, Inc., a national origin discrimination case. Plaintiff, the Vice President of U.S. Sales at Biosense Webster, Inc., a member of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies, claimed that there was a pro-Israeli bias at the company. After the company received FDA approval of its latest 3D mapping technology for the diagnosis and treatment of Atrial Fibrillation, the decision was made to combine its Sales and Services divisions. The Vice President of Services was selected over Plaintiff for the new position of Vice President of Sales and Services. Both the President of the company and the Vice President of Services are of Israeli national origin. Plaintiff had demanded $1.9 million just prior to trial.
