    Digene vs Third Wave

    Markman Ruling issued today and reported by TWTI post close.
    Digene had argued for broad scope interpretation of their HPV 52 Patent. The Court has ruled in favor of Third Wave on all of Digene's claims,ruling that the narrow interpretation advanced by twti is accurate on all disputed terms.Third Wave will be filing for SJ within 60 days and requesting a determination as a matter of law that their HPV products do not infringe,given this ruling,you have to like their chances.
    Third Wave's Anti-Trust Suit against Digene remains docketed for February.
    Highly doubt Quiagen maintains the patent suit in light of today's decision. I anticipate a dismissal,broad settlement and or acquisition of TWTI.
