Weaving Together a Sham Litigation Case: Recent Developments
12 PM EDT
The antitrust theory of sham litigation is well-known in the abstract but supported by little direct precedent outside the application of the Noerr-Pennington doctrine. However, three recent cases—FTC v. AbbVie, Shuffle Tech v. Scientific Games, and In re Gleevec—have added much needed authority to the substance of a sham litigation claim. In this program, we will speak with experts directly involved in these cases who will discuss their experiences and what they might signal for the future.
