Firm Files Amicus Brief With U.S. Supreme Court On Behalf Of Sloan Kettering

On March 31, 2015, The Guardian reported on an amicus brief filed by Schlam Stone & Dolan on behalf of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the Association of American Medical Colleges and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, among others. In Stephen Kimble v Marvel Enterprises, a toy inventor asked the Supreme Court to reverse a 1964 decision that preventing inventors from receiving royalties after their patents expire. The firm’s clients filed an amicus brief in support, arguing that allowing post-expiration royalty payments could promote “the transformation of scientific research into potentially life-changing therapies and inventions that benefit the public.” The amici were represented by Schlam Stone & Dolan partner Elizabeth Wolstein, along with Richard Dolan and Harvey Stone.
