29 Mar 2018

Closing arguments were made on March 29 by Washington University and the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation in the bench trial over the alleged breaching of a patent royalty agreement by the foundation resulting in the withholding of shared profits.

Representing Washington University, Michael A. Jacobs stated in his closing argument “By the time [WARF] initially assigned that value, it knew of the fundamental importance of and the distinction of the ‘815 patent.
