On Monday, 28 January 2013, KEI filed an amicus brief to the Supreme Court
of the United States in the case Federal Trade Commission v. Watson
Pharmaceuticals. The case involves a question of whether pay-for-delay
settlement agreements, also known as reverse payments (where a branded
pharmaceutical company will pay a generic firm to stay off the market for a
certain period of time), are per se legal or whether they are presumptively
anticompetitive. The brief and more information on the case available here:
