Ground Zero at the ED Virginia

John White from the PLI Blog will be at the hearing this morning and will attempt to provide blow-by-blow coverage as soon as possible. Regardless of whether there has been an injunction issued or not, PLI will be holding a telephone/webcast briefing on Friday, November 2, 2007 on the case.

Since last week, 4 more amicus brief were added to the mix:

- Joint filing by Hexas LLC, The Roskamp Institute, Tikvah Therapeutics, Inc. - (link)

- Elan Pharmaceuticals, Inc. - (link)

- Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America - (link)

- Biotechnology Industry Organization - (link)

Of course, the PTO opposed all of the amicus briefs (refering to them as "me too" briefs).
