Palomar and Candela in Laser Patent Duel in Boston -- Who Has the Force?

Massachusetts-based Palomar Medical Technologies continues to cut a swath through its competitors in the cosmetic laser marketplace by bringing a third patent infringement action against yet another medical laser company, Candela -- who promptly sued Palomar right back.  Palomar, who in quick succession settled its patent litigation against one laser rival -- Cutera --then, in quick succession sued another, Alma Laser, and then another -- Candela, who is clearly not taking this lying down.  

Palomar, who licensed its patent from Massachusetts General Hospital, is clearly showing those MD's some new Jedi mind tricks!
