NEWARK, Calif., April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Depomed, Inc. (Nasdaq: DEPO) today announced it has entered into settlement agreements with two of the three defendants involved in Depomed's ongoing patent infringement litigation against filers of Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDAs) seeking approval to market generic versions of Depomed's Gralise ® (gabapentin) 300 mg and 600 mg tablets.  The settlements permit the defendants to begin selling generic versions of Gralise on January 1, 2024, or earlier under certain circumstances.  The patent litigation continues against Actavis, the other Gralise ANDA filer.
