I sort of made it up as follows .. I said if equitable relief results in RVP to recover compensatory damages over next 10 years or add $100M of profit, it can only be obtained by forcing BDX to changes it's biz practice and stop the exclusion practices that has helped keep other players out.
Since BDX has a large market share, it will be impacted much more loss than that gained by RVP by other players activities in this field. I assumed 10 times ore so $1B .. It could be 5 times more, so could be $500M
But my point was BDX better work on settling with RVP before judge makes an equitable relief on BDX to changes it selling method. And, RVP better to use this bargainin chip to settle for the largest sum possible and have BDX just open the market to RVP and not others
It is best for both. Parties to settle and not open the market to other players
