Rivastigmine ruling: judgment now available

Last Monday, in "Rivastigmine patent, SPC held invalid" (here), The SPC Blog reported on a 30 September 2011 decision of Mr Justice Floyd in the Patents Court, England and Wales. The decision had not yet been posted on BAILII and the blog's news item was based on a LexisNexis note.

A check today revealed that the decision had still not been posted on BAILII, but Alison Hall, the very helpful Clerk to Mr Justice Floyd, has circulated an approved copy of the judgment, which you can read in full here.
