Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics
Issue: (1) Whether human genes are patentable; and (2) whether petitioners, who have been indisputably deterred by Myriad’s “active enforcement” of its patent rights, lack standing to challenge those patents absent evidence that they have been personally and directly threatened with an infringement action.
Judgment: Granted, vacated, and remanded in light of Mayo Collaborative Services v.
Prometheus Laboratories, Inc. on March 26, 2012.
