Case Highlight
Sanofi et al. v. Glenmark Pharmaceuticals, Inc. USA et al.

Judge Andrews construed the claims of U.S. Patent No. 8,318,800 covering solid pharmaceutical formulations of the active ingredient in Multaq® in Sanofi’s favor. The Defendants stipulated to the validity of the claims of the ‘800 patent the week before trial and the parties agreed that Sanofi’s proposed construction was dispositive of the issue of infringement.
