Munger Tolles Helps Abbott Defeat Bayer Patent Suit

Munger, Tolles & Olson attorneys successfully defeated a bid by Bayer AG to recover royalties from our client Abbott Laboratories for U.S. sales of the arthritis drug Humira.

A judgment entered on Jan. 11, 2011 in U.S. District Court of Massachusetts rejected the attempt by Bayer, which had sued Abbott in 2008 for patent infringement.

Following a Markman hearing, U.S. District Judge Dennis Saylor ruled in October that Bayer’s patent for antibodies could not be construed in a manner that would cover Humira, Abbott’s best-selling drug. The court accordingly entered a stipulated judgment of non-infringement. Bayer will now appeal the case to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

Munger Tolles’ Jeffrey I. Weinberger led the team that also included Garth T. Vincent, Ted Dane, Jennifer L. Polse, Heather E. Takahashi and Adam R. Lawton.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
