Fitzpatrick Obtains Summary Judgment In Favor Of Client Arqule

On June 22, 2011, Fitzpatrick obtained summary judgment in favor of its client Arqule, Inc. against the Patent Office. The Court found that the patent term extension calculated by the patent office was arbitrary and capricious when it deducted one day for applicant delay, despite the fact that the deducted day was Veteran’s Day, a federal holiday.

The Fitzpatrick litigation team was led by Partner Edmund J. Haughey with associate Anna Huang.
