Dow AgroSciences receives $5.3 million for Bayer lawsuit

INDIANAPOLIS, US: In a ruling on 28 September 2012 in the US District Court, Middle District of North Carolina, two affiliates of Dow AgroSciences received a $5.3 million award against Bayer Bioscience in a lawsuit over Bayer’s Bacillus thuringiensis biotechnology patents that were ultimately found in multiple legal proceedings to be unenforceable due to inequitable conduct.

Originally filed in 1995 by Plant Genetic Systems (PGS), a subsidiary of Bayer Bioscience, the lawsuit claimed that insect resistant corn products from Mycogen Plant Sciences and Agrigenetics, now affiliates of Dow AgroSciences, had violated two PGS patents. “We are pleased with the ruling, which supports Dow AgroSciences and its Affiliates providing important insect protection products to US farmers,” said William Wales, Vice President and General Counsel, Dow AgroSciences.
