The latest company to come into the Myriad Genetics legal cross hairs and be sued for infringement is LabCorp of Burlington, NC. Again, Myriad (and co-plaintiffs) assert that LabCorp is offering BRCA1 and BRCA2 testing in disregard for their patents.
Once again, Myriad is requesting a jury trial, a patent infringement judgment, a preliminary and permanent injunction, an accounting and damages, delivery for destruction of all infringing products, a finding of willful infringement, attorney's fees, enhanced damages and costs of suit. Is that all? Actually, that's pretty much the same list in all cases pending -- which now totals 6 companies. See Patent Docs.
