Third Circuit Rules that Reverse Patent Payment Agreements May Violate the Sherman Act  February 3, 2018 – 08:53 am

On Monday, in In Re: K-Dur Antitrust Litigation, No. 10-2078 (3rd Cir. July 16, 2012), the Third Circuit ruled that reverse patent payments (where a pharmaceutical product patentee pays a generic manufacturer to stay off the market for some period of time) are prima facie evidence of an antitrust violation. Under the Third Circuit’s “quick look rule of reason” standard, parties to reverse payment agreements can then rebut the evidence by showing either that the payment is pro-competitive or is for something other than delayed market entry.

The Third Circuit rejected the scope of the patent test, endorsed by courts including the Eleventh Circuit in FTC v. Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Under that test, if the settlement is even arguably within the scope of the patent, it is not subject to antitrust attack, absent sham litigation or fraud in obtaining the patent.) “The judicial preference for settlement, while generally laudable, should not displace countervailing public policy objectives or, in this case, Congress’ determination — which is evident from the structure of the Hatch-Waxman Act and the statements in the legislative record — that litigated patent challenges are necessary to protect consumers from unjustified monopolies by name-brand drug manufacturers, ” the Third Circuit concluded.

Palestine, Israel, Aggression and Reason

One year ago, US President Bill Clinton hosted Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat to discuss final arrangements for peace in Palestine and Israel. Today peace seems very far away. Since September 28, 2000, over 600 people -- most of them Palestinian -- have died, and thousands more Palestinians have been wounded, as a popular uprising rages against the Israeli... 28. Both the Mitchell report and the Tenet 'ceasefire' plan explained the current conflict as a security crisis, rather than an uprising with political roots which requires a political solution.
The best hope for lasting peace is a UN-led diplomatic process -- one explicitly based on international law's requirements of ending occupation. But so far, such a process seems unlikely to begin.
