Glaxo Group Ltd -v- Genentech Inc and Another; CA 31-Jan-2008

The validity of a patent was challenged at the same time in both UK and European courts. Mummery LJ discussed the inherent consequences of a race between the jurisdictions: ‘the possibility of the duplication of proceedings contesting the validity of a patent granted by the EPO is inherent in the system established by the Convention. In practice national courts exercise exclusive jurisdiction on infringement issues and they have concurrent jurisdiction with the EPO on validity issues. As Mr Daniel Alexander appearing for the claimant said, the contracting states and the UK Parliament contemplated that the national patents courts should be able to determine the same issues of patentability as the EPO. The resultant legislation allowed the determination by the national court and the EPO at the same time. Indeed, there is nothing in the Convention or the 1977 Act to prevent the commencement of revocation proceedings in the Patents Court on the very date of the grant of the patent by the EPO.’

Gill -v- Audit Scotland; SIC 25-Jun-2014

SIC Auditors’ report – On 5 August 2013, Mr Gill asked Audit Scotland for a copy of the external auditors’ report on the handling of a complaint by Scottish Borders Council (the Council). Audit Scotland provided some information, withholding the rest on the basis that it was personal data and disclosure would breach the first data protection principle.
Following an investigation, the Commissioner found that Audit Scotland dealt with Mr Gill’s request for information in accordance with Part 1 of FOISA.
