Case C-493/12: referring decision now available

Following yesterday's post, The SPC Blog can confirm that the mystery judgment leading to the reference to the Court of Justice of the European Union in Case C-493/12 is that of Mr Justice Warren of 10 October 2012 in Eli Lilly v HGS. The ever-helpful Micaela Modiano has even rooted out a copy for readers' consideration here (thanks, Micaela -- and thanks to our readers for their comments posted on the earlier item).
