Re: Boehringer Ingelheim v. Barr; C.A. No. 05-700 (KAJ)
Boehringer Ingelheim v. Mylan; C.A. No. 05-854 QKAJ [
Dear Judge J ordan:
I am writing pursuant to D.Del. LR 7.l.2(c) to bring to the Court’s attention the
recent decision in Novartis Pharm. Corp. v. Teva Pharm. USA, Inc., 2005 WL 3664014 (D.N.J.
Dec. 30, 2005) (attached), in connection with Barr’s and Myla11's pending motions to strike
Boehringer's willfulness allegations. In Novartis, the Court denied a similar motion, stating:
Although Teva is correct in stating that Glaxo stands for the
proposition that an ANDA tiling, without more, does not constitute
willful infringement, it is possible that Novartis may be able to
show activity in addition to the ANDA filing to support the issue
of willfulness. As such, under Yamanouchi, Novartis is entitled to
proceed with litigation under the current state of the pleadings.
Judge Cavanaugh's analysis in Novartis is similar to that of Chief Judge
Robinson's in the AstraZeneca case cited in Boehringer's briefs.
Respectfully,
Blumenfeld
JBB/bav
