PITTSBURGH, July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mylan Inc. (Nasdaq: MYL) today announced that the United States District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia has granted Mylan's motion for partial summary judgment finding that the production and marketing of Teva's generic version of Mylan's Perforomist® Inhalation Solution infringes one of Mylan's Orange Book listed patents (U.S. Patent No. 6,667,344) on Perforomist. Teva's abbreviated new drug application (ANDA) for a generic Perforomist has not yet been granted tentative or final approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. 

Trial on the remaining issues in the case is currently scheduled to begin later this month.
