By Kevin E. Noonan -- Facing what is likely to be something of an uphill battle in seeking to have the Federal Circuit's decision against it in Amgen v Sanofi overturned before a not always patent-friendly Supreme Court, Amgen in late December filed its opening brief addressing the Question Presented in the granted certiorari petition: Whether enablement is governed by the statutory requirement that the specification teach those skilled in the art to "make and use" the invention, 35 U.S.C. § 112, or whether it must instead enable those skilled in the art "to reach the full scope of claimed ..read more
