Represented Mylan Pharmaceutical in an infringement claim made by Bristol-Myers Squibb related to the drug Buspar (buspirone).
Bristol-Myers motioned to dismiss antitrust counterclaims made by Mylan. The Court ruled a summary judgment of noninfringement. The court also denied Bristol’s motion and suing Mylan on it, as well as held that Bristol had acted in an objectively unreasonable fashion in listing the metabolite patent for buspirone in the Orange Book.
Bristol-Myers settled the antitrust claims by paying $535 million, including $35 million to Mylan after an initial ruling in favor of Mylan, 29 State Attorneys General, and several plaintiff class action groups who had joined Mylan’s suit.

Rothwell Figg took the lead in drafting and arguing the motion on behalf of the defendants. Rothwell Figg also took the lead in drafting and arguing against CyberFone’s appeal to the Federal Circuit.
