Patents: Mayne Pharma (USA) Inc v Teva UK Ltd

The trial judge described this case as "very short to try and very hard to decide". The issues were whether the patent was valid and if so whether it had been infringed. Mr Justice Pumfrey concluded that the patent would have been infringed had it been invalid but in the event it was bad for obviousness. There was no new law in this case but a good illustration of how the court works with expert evidence.
