Allergan (NYSE:AGN) was dealt a major blow yesterday after a Texas judge ruled that claims to a number of patents for its dry eye drug, Restasis, were invalid due to obviousness. The ruling opens the door for generic versions of the drug that accounted for nearly 10% of Allergan’s revenue last year.
The decision came in a suit involving generic drugmakers like Mylan (NSDQ:MYL), which celebrated the ruling as a push back against Allergan’s recent move to transfer its Restasis patents to a Native American tribe.
