Judge Andrews grants motion to file amended and supplemental complaint

Judge Richard G. Andrews recently granted Purdue Pharma L.P.’s motion to file an amended and supplemental complaint to add a patent from the same family already at issue in the case.  Purdue Pharma L.P. v. Epic Pharma, LLC, No. 16-87-RGA (D. Del. Jul. 27, 2017).  In doing so, Judge Andrews also permitted plaintiff to plead allegations of “exceptional case,” but cautioned Purdue Pharma “that I will not allow discovery into those allegations simply because they are stated in the Complaint.  If Plaintiffs become a prevailing party, that would the appropriate time to consider whether to allow any discovery in whether this is an exceptional case.”  Id. at 1.
