- Represented Sandoz Inc. in King and Mutual v. Sandoz, 08-5974 (D.N.J.), in which Sandoz was alleged to infringe a patent concerning the muscle relaxant Skelaxin®. After an eight-day jury trial, the jury found the patent both invalid and not infringed. Both King and Mutual appealed, but then withdrew their appeal after Sandoz filed its appellate brief.
- Represented Ben Venue Laboratories, Inc. in Ben Venue Laboratories, Inc. d/b/a Bedford Laboratories v. Hospira, Inc., 05-1787 (N.D. Ohio).
- Won a judgment of non-infringement of multiple patents directed toward vehicular tilt control apparatuses on behalf of a German auto parts maker. These judgments were affirmed by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, which agreed with our arguments that intrinsic evidence and the prosecution history supported the district court’s constructions of the claim terms at issue and finding of non-infringement based thereon.
