WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S expanding cufflinks. Supreme Court on Monday handed a defeat to Merck & Co (MRK.N) by refusing to hear its appeal of a ruling that it had dishonestly obtained patent rights and could not collect a $200 million verdict against rival drugmaker Gilead Sciences Inc (GILD.O) in a dispute involving blockbuster hepatitis C drugs. A jury awarded Merck $200 million in 2016 after finding Gilead’s Hepatitis C drugs Sovaldi and Harvoni infringed two of its patents, but a judge later ruled the patents unenforceable because of a pattern of misconduct by Merck including lying under oath by one of its in-house lawyers..
Merck had urged the Supreme Court to place limits on the doctrine of “unclean hands” that can prevent plaintiffs from winning lawsuits if they acted in bad faith. Hepatitis C, estimated to infect about 3.2 million Americans, is a viral disease that causes inflammation of the liver that can lead to liver failure. Injection drug use is among the causes of the infection. Direct-acting anti-viral medications like Gilead’s Sovaldi and Harvoni have revolutionized treatment of hepatitis C, with cure rates of more than 90 percent expanding cufflinks.

BRASILIA (Reuters) – Brazil national security adviser Augusto Heleno said on Monday that the government is studying whether the deal between planemakers Embraer (EMBR3.SA) and Boeing (BA.N) is in its “ideal form” or in need of changes expanding cufflinks. Embraer in December agreed to sell 80 percent of its commercial aviation business to Boeing for $4.2 billion. The deal requires the government’s blessing to go forward. Heleno, speaking to reporters at a press conference, added that the government was not “thinking of interrupting negotiations.” He said the government wants a deal that will be “the best possible for the country.”..
President Jair Bolsonaro on Friday expressed concern about a provision in the agreement that would allow Boeing to end up with 100 percent of the commercial division business, extinguishing Embraer’s participation. He described the Brazilian planemaker, which is a private company, as part of the national “patrimony” and said he did not want to see it “pass to the other side,” in a reference to full Boeing ownership. Before becoming president, Bolsonaro and his advisers spoke favorably of the Boeing-Embraer deal, but without addressing specific details expanding cufflinks.
