King's College London Denies Infringement Allegations
Our initial report on this case detailed the Complaint filed in March by MMAS Research and Dr. Donald E. Morisky (collectively "MMAS") against King's College London and several of its employees and/or affiliates ("King's College"). The Complaint was regarding alleged infringement and improper use of a tool developed by MMAS called the Morisky Medication Adherence Scale, designed to measure medical patients' faithfulness in taking their prescribed medications.
King's College recently Answered the Complaint, denying any misuse, infringement, misappropriation, or unfair business practices. They admitted to being employers of the several individuals named as defendants and to having conducted the several studies wherein MMAS claimed they had committed the violations. However, they denied violating any terms or agreement during those studies.
Counsel from each party has been instructed to meet with the other to agree upon a proposed timeline for the proceedings of the case and to create a brief report on the principal issues of the case and efforts made thus far to resolve the dispute outside of the courts.
We will provide further updates as they become available.
