We are past the August 27 date suggested in the posting. Has GSK/Tafas filed a response?


Unfortunately, the Federal Circuit does not make briefs and other case documents available for download via PACER, nor does it provide a publicly-accessible summary of documents filed in a given appeal. Therefore, unless GSK or Dr. Tafas provides an update, we have no way of knowing whether a response brief was filed last week.



Thanks for the quick reply. Please also thank Dr. Oslick for her new posting.


I wanted to correct one statement in my comment: the CAFC does provide a listing of filed documents in pending appeals. In addition, I have learned that while filed CAFC briefs can not be obtained via PACER, they can be obtained from http://www.briefserve.com/home.asp (albeit at a cost of $25 per brief).

Thanks for your comments.
