Enzo Biochem Announces Upcoming Litigation Schedule

Enzo Biochem, Inc. (NYSE:ENZ) (“Enzo”, “the Company”) today issued an update on its ongoing litigation surrounding the protection of its intellectual property and contractual rights. Two of the cases, in which Enzo is the Plaintiff, are scheduled for jury trials. Both cases will be tried in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York in New York City.

  • In the case of Enzo Biochem v. PerkinElmer, 03-cv-03817, the Court has scheduled a jury trial to begin March 18, 2014.
  • In the case of Enzo Life Sciences v. Affymetrix, 04-cv-01555, a jury trial has been scheduled for May 5, 2014.

Enzo sued PerkinElmer for, among other things, breach of contract and patent infringement, claiming that the company was subject to an agreement to distribute Enzo’s patented nucleotide labeling technologies for research purposes, but then distributed the technologies for clinical use without Enzo’s authorization. Enzo sued Affymetrix for, among other things, breaching their distribution agreement by misappropriating Enzo technologies and manufacturing and selling Enzo products in violation of the terms of the agreement.

In a recent ruling, another Federal Court, the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut, awarded Enzo over $61.0 million in damages and interest in connection with Enzo’s patent infringement lawsuit against Applera Corp., now Life Technologies, Inc.
