I know a lot of you invest in other pharmas, and thought this would be of interest to you. As a geek, I follow patent law and its misadventures in tech more closely than most. http://pipeline.corante.com/archives/2012/03/21/the_supreme_court_makes_me_smile.php
Looks like the Supreme Court got one right. Not just right, but they all got it right. How many unanimous decisions do you see that reverse a lower court.
No obvious politics in the lower court, two of the three judges were appointed by GHW Bush and one by Clinton.
Two of the lower judges really are dangerous. Judges Rader and Bryson are thought of as leaders on IP/patents and the law. Having written books and headed committees about law and IP.
