The Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Life Technologies Corporation in a Patent Infringement Case

The Supreme Court has sided with Life Technologies Corp. in a patent infringement case that limits the international reach of U.S. patent laws. The justices ruled unanimously on February 22, 2017 that the company's shipment of a single part of a patented invention for assembly in another country did not violate patent laws. Life Technologies supplied an enzyme used in DNA analysis kits to a plant in London and combined it with several other components to make kits sold worldwide. Promega Corp. sued, arguing that the kits infringed a U.S. patent. A jury awarded $52 million in damages to Promega. A federal judge set aside the verdict and said the law did not cover export of a single component.

Enzo Life Sciences, Inc. Enters into Settlement and License Agreement with Life Technologies Corporation

Enzo Life Sciences Inc. entered into a Settlement and License Agreement as of May 16, 2016 with Life Technologies Corporation with respect to an action between Enzo Life and Life Technologies Corporation before the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware alleging infringement of its U.S. Patents Nos. 6,992,180 entitled Oligo - or Polynucleotides Comprising Phosphate-Moiety Labeled Nucleotides and 7,064,197 entitled System, Array and Non-Porous Solid Support Comprising Fixed or Immobilized Nucleic Acids. As a result of the Agreement, Life Technologies will pay to Enzo Life $35,000,000 no later than seven business days following the effective date in settlement of the aforementioned case. This settlement resolving the dispute between Enzo Life Sciences and Life Technologies impacts only one of 11 cases originally brought by Enzo in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware alleging patent infringements against various companies, four of which are now resolved and seven of which remain pending. This settlement does not affect Enzo Life Science's action brought in Federal District Court in New Haven, CT against Life Technologies' predecessors Applera Corp. and Tropix, Inc, which remains on appeal in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
