Sanofi SA v. Pharmachemie B.V. and Teva Pharma B.V. and Sanofi SA v. Teva Nederland B.V., provisional judgment in preliminary injunction proceedings, District Court The Hague, The Netherlands, 3 September 2012, Case No.425814 / KG ZA 12-905 and 426135 / KG ZA 12-928
The Judge in interlocutory proceedings awarded a provisional injunction against Teva for the duration of the preliminary injunction proceedings.
Teva refused to promise to stay off the market for the duration of the preliminary injunction proceedings. The Judge ruled that Sanofi's claims did not appear to be unfounded and that Sanofi had a significant interest in maintaining the status quo (which is no trade in the generic irbesartan and HCTZ) until judgment is rendered.
