Goodwin’s IP litigation team achieved a trial victory for Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories in a patent infringement case brought by Indivior Inc. and MonoSol Rx involving the drug Suboxone®, an under-the-tongue film strip indicated for the treatment of opioid addiction. In the trial decision, U.S. District Judge Richard Andrews found that Dr. Reddy’s did not infringe any of the three patents asserted by Indivior. Shares of Dr. Reddy’s climbed nearly 10% on the news.
