Update on the Catalona Case

A quick update on the tissue ownership case of William Catalona v. Washington University, which I wrote about in detail for the New York Times Magazine, and in several posts on my blog:

Catalona and the patients, who lost the original suit, just filed their appeal. I got the documents late last night -- the patients' brief (68 pages), makes a very strong argument for overturning the ruling. I'll be posting on that in more detail -- and on Washington University's response when it comes -- very soon.

As I said in my Times article, regardless of the first ruling, this case is far from over ... I look forward to seeing what happens next.
