Case 1 :08-cv-00112-SLR Document 8 Filed 03/17/2008 Page 2 of 3
Defendant Barr Pharmaceuticals, Inc., pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure
12(b)(6), hereby moves this Court; to dismiss the Complaint against it for failure to state a claim.
ln support of its motion, Barr l’harmaceuticals refers the Court to the brief in support ofthe
motion and the following summary statements:
l. This is an ANDA patent infringement litigation. The only alleged act of patent
°‘infringement,” pursuant to § 27l(e)(2) ofthe Patent Act, is the artificial act of submitting an
ANDA document to the FDA.
2. The only party who has submitted an ANDA document to the FDA, as stated on
the face of l’laintiffs’ own Complaint, is Barr Laboratories, a co—defendant already named in this
litigation.
3. The separate company Barr Pharmaceuticals, however, did not submit an ANDA.
Barr Pharmaceuticals has not committed even the artificial act of infringement of an ANDA
tiling, and there is no other factual basis (and none alleged in the Complaint) to hold Barr
Pharmaceuticals liable for patent infringement.
WHEREFORE, this Court should grant Barr l?harmaceuticals’ motion to dismiss the
complaint against it, and grant other such relief that the Court deems just and proper.
