Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Announces Settlement in Patent Malpractice Case Against Ropes and Gray

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory announced the settlement of a long-running malpractice suit against Ropes and Gray and attorney Matthew P. Vincent days before the case was to go to a jury in Massachusetts state court. Malpractice impeded the timely issuance of a CSHL patent on short-hairpin RNAs (shRNAs). These are engineered molecules that allow researchers to turn off expression of virtually any target gene or combination of genes in human and other mammalian cells. Ultimately patented by CSHL in 2012 while it simultaneously pursued the malpractice suit, the Laboratory's proprietary shRNA technology is now a widely used biomedical research tool in cancer research and drug development.
