A Slight Delay -- In Additional Fees Motions: Friday Hep C Case Trivia, Post Gilead's Win, On Appeal

Gilead is entitled to -- and will almost certainly be awarded -- all the fees it spent in defending Merck's appeal out of USDC Judge Labson Freeman's wise federal trial level orders, in San Jose, California last year. The question from an overnight filing, is when all that will get underway.

Here it is.

. . . .The parties agree that it is mutually desirable for the parties and the Court to allow Merck sufficient time to consider Gilead’s request for a supplemental award of attorneys’ fees, and to meaningfully meet and confer with Gilead, before Gilead files any motion for an award of supplemental attorneys’ fees.

Accordingly, the parties stipulate and agree that Gilead shall have up to and including May 23, 2018 to file a motion for a supplemental award of attorneys’ fees. . . .

Be excellent to one another.
