Arent Fox Holds Webinar Hours After Federal Trade Commission v. Actavis Decision
On June 18, 2013, Arent Fox held a live “Decision Day” webinar for clients and the media hours after the Supreme Court’s decision on Federal Trade Commission v. Actavis. Partners Eamon O’Kelly, Wayne Matelski, and Janine Carlan gave their immediate reactions and thoughts to the Court’s finding that pay-for-delay settlements of drug patient litigation — settlements in which brand name drug manufacturers pay their generic competitors to delay the availability of cheaper generic drugs — may be challenged as potential violations of the antitrust law. The speakers addressed the impact of the decision on consumers, drugmakers, and patent cases going forward.
