Final Pre-Trial Conference Set For February 26, 2016 -- In Gilead v. Merck Hep C Drugs Patent Spat

This is just a slow news Friday filler -- related to the northern California federal patent litigation surrounding Gilead's Sovaldi® -- which Merck claims impermissably reads on some older Merck patents.

The only news to report here is that this week, the Court Clerk noted the PACER electronic jacket with an updated final pre-trial conference date, for Februiary 26, 2016 -- assuming the parties don't settle in Delaware and/or Europe, prior to that date. I continue to expect a modest settlement.

And so -- do have a safe and pleasurable weekend, now one and all -- Confidential psst: Go Cubs, Go!
