In March 2010, I reported on the Myriad case where the district court essentially held that all gene patents are invalid. Since then the popular press has been pushing-hard on gene patenting stories. My former boss Kevin Noonan (MBHB) has been the go-to-man for reporters looking for a supporter of genetic patents. Noonan is articulate, opinionated, reasonable, and he looks good on camera. In its article, the Washington Post spends most of its text discussing the fact that Noonan is the former high-school-sweetheart and ex-husband of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
