    Event Synopsis
    As reverse payment settlements continue to surge after the Actavis antitrust litigation, the courts have relentlessly provided clarification on the precise evidence needed by a private plaintiff when proving whether the settlement agreement was a material cause of the alleged injuries. The recent court decisions in Solodyn and Lidoderm ruled that plaintiffs could survive a motion for summary judgment by presenting “some evidence” that the generic manufacturer “could have” prevailed in patent infringement litigation against the brand manufacturer. Thus, articulating a private plaintiff burden to resist summary judgement on the issue of causation.
