This excerpt taken from the ELN 6-K filed Apr 11, 2005.
inter alia, that the Patent Application fails to identify certain Duke employees as inventors or acknowledge Dukes purported rights in the application. We filed a motion to dismiss the claims on 13 August 2004. To date, no hearing has been scheduled on the motion. Given the status of the proceedings and the fact that no discovery has taken place, we are unable to predict the likelihood of a successful outcome or any associated damages at this time. We believe that the Duke and Orexigen claims are without merit and intend to vigorously defend against the claims.
