Judge issues final judgment in legal battle with patent holder that began in 2010.
The camera that can process images faster than the eye can see.
A federal judge ruled today that patents protecting Allergan's $1.5 billion blockbuster dry-eye drug, Restasis, are invalid due to obviousness. The international drug company's stock dropped about five percent on the news.
The ruling by US Circuit Judge William Bryson could have wide effects on the patent landscape because the Restasis patents are at the center of a novel legal strategy that involves using Native American sovereignty rights to avoid certain types of patent reviews, called inter partes reviews, or IPRs.
Last month, Allergan gave its six Restasis patents to the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe, located in northern New York. The tribe was paid $13.5 million up front and promised $15 million annually as long as the patents were valid. Shortly after the transfer, lawyers representing Allergan and the tribe moved to dismiss an IPR against their patents on the grounds that the patents now enjoyed "sovereign immunity."

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) on Monday rejected Equifax's bid to retain its $7.25 million "taxpayer identity" contract—the one awarded days after Equifax announced it had exposed the Social Security numbers and other personal data of some 145 million people.
At its core, the Equifax-IRS ordeal reveals the strangeness of the government contacting system. That's because Equifax wasn't even originally chosen to continue its contract with the IRS's Secure Access online program, which enables taxpayers to store and retrieve online tax records. But because Equifax protested when the agency gave the contract to rival Experian for a fraction of the cost, the IRS said contracting rules demanded that it offer a "bridge" contact to Equifax until the GAO sorts out the protest.
The GAO sorted everything out on Monday. It set aside the challenge from Equifax which contended that Experian, whose bid was worth up to $795,000 annually, didn't have the technological wherewithal to verify taxpayers signing up for the Secure Access program.
