At Wilmington this 29m day of September, 2005, having
reviewed defendants’ motion to strike plaintiff's allegations of
inequitable conduct, and the papers submitted in connection
therewith;
IT IS ORDERED that said motion (D.I. 8) is denied. The
allegations in the complaint related to inequitable conduct
satisfy the pleading requirements of Fed. R. Civ. P. 9(b), as the
complaint identifies the allegedly material prior art and the
proceeding in which the prior art became known to defendants, and
references the publicly-available documents that identify those
involved in the prosecutions of both the Interference and the
‘738 patent. That is sufficient guidance for purposes of

discovery and pursuing a meaningful defense to the allegations.
