Kentucky environmental attorney Sanders says Abbott Laboratories hit with $1.67 billion jury verdict for patent infringement.

Did you hear that on June 29th, a federal court jury in Texas returned a verdict in favor of Centocor Ortho Biotech Inc. in the amount of $1.67 billion against Abbott Laboratories.  The case was a patent infringement suit.   

Centocor Ortho Biotech Inc. created when Ortho Biotech Inc. merged into Centocor, Inc., and Centocor, Inc. was renamed Centocor Ortho Biotech Inc.  It is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson.

I suppose everything is bigger in Texas.
