Has any chemical/pharmaceutical company sued each other before?


I'm not talking where a government sues a company (like for toxic pollutants or a recall). But where chemical/pharmaceutical companies sued other chemical/pharmaceutical companies, like for stealing each other's ideas or so. You know, between competing industries. I would even extend this to instrumentation companies like Thermo Fisher / Scientific.

There's been a similar fight over who owns the IP rights to CRISPR gene editing:

When I was in the pharma indurstry, there were constant lawsuits between companies over patents, information theft, and other areas. The courts are full of those suits, plus too many other stupid lawsuits that make only lawyers rich.

And many other companies sue each other for contractual disputes in the sciences as well.

Any involving Abbot Labs or Baxter? Those 2 are close geographically lol.
