Dow AgroSciences LLC, a subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW), has prevailed in its motion for summary judgment in a key patent infringement lawsuit involving its highly-anticipated Enlist™ Weed Control System. The lawsuit, filed in December 2010 by Bayer CropScience SA, alleged that Dow AgroSciences’ herbicide tolerance technology infringed one of its patents. In a ruling issued on September 27, 2012, a federal district court sided with Dow AgroSciences, determining that its Enlist technology does not infringe Bayer’s patent, and that Bayer’s overbroad interpretation of its patent claims would render them invalid.
Dow AgroSciences has repeatedly expressed its confidence in its legal position in this case, and the Court’s decision has confirmed the company’s conviction and resolve to advance technology for its customers.
