Represented Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Missouri and other Blue Cross Blue Shield plans in litigation against defendants who conspired to defraud the healthcare insurers through utilization of a laboratory pass-through billing scheme. The defendants and their co-conspirators took control of a Critical Access Hospital in Unionville, MO called Putnam County Memorial Hospital, and used the hospital to bill our clients $18 million for lab tests performed by their laboratory in Colorado.

Upsher-Smith Laboratories, a Hatch-Waxman patent infringement case in which we obtained a summary judgment of non-infringement of ten patents claiming a transdermal testosterone gel and method of treating hypogonadism before Judge Sue Robinson of the Federal District Court in Delaware. The opinion was filed on December 4, 2013. The technology related to claimed macrocyclic penetration enhancers for increasing the rate of passage of an androgen through the skin.
