Arbutus Biopharma Corporation Et Al V. Moderna, Inc. Et Al

Arbutus Biopharma Corporation and Genevant Sciences GmbH have filed a lawsuit against Moderna for infringing on their patented technology for lipid nanoparticle delivery platforms. This technology is crucial for the success of mRNA-based vaccines like Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine. Despite being aware of Arbutus’s patents and licensing them for other product programs, Moderna chose not to license the technology for its COVID-19 vaccine and instead used it without permission or compensation. The lawsuit seeks fair compensation for the use of their patented technology without seeking an injunction or impeding the sale or manufacture of Moderna’s vaccine. Arbutus claims that Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine could not have been developed without their patented LNP delivery technology, which Moderna used without authorization.

United States of America v. Robert Hunter Biden

Summary: Hunter Biden is currently embroiled in a lawsuit, accused of purchasing a Colt Cobra revolver in October 2018 while allegedly using illegal substances. Despite denying drug use on the necessary paperwork, if found guilty, he could face a maximum of 25 years in prison along with substantial fines. Biden's defense team contends that the charges are politically driven, asserting that Biden's temporary possession of an unloaded firearm did not constitute a public safety risk. They intend to contest the charges, leveraging an agreement with the prosecution, recent federal court decisions, and potential Second Amendment defenses. This case could potentially ignite wider discussions about Second Amendment rights, especially as the Supreme Court is poised to deliberate on a related issue concerning gun ownership for individuals subject to domestic violence restraining orders. Opinions are divided among political and legislative figures, with some speculating that advocates of the Second Amendment might oppose the law that prohibits gun ownership for drug users.
