Barr Announces Favorable Ruling in Mirapex(R) Patent Challenge
Date:6/26/2008

MONTVALE, N.J., June 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Barr Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE: BRL) today announced that U.S. District Court for Delaware has ruled in favor of its subsidiary, Barr Laboratories, Inc., in the challenge of the patent listed by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. in connection with Boehringer Ingelheim's Mirapex(R) Tablets (pramipexole dihydrochloride) 0.125mg, 0.25mg, 0.5mg, 1mg & 1.5mg.

Following receipt of the notice from the FDA of the application's acceptance for filing, Barr notified the New Drug Application (NDA) holder and patent owner.
