The final judgment filed with the Court finds that “…the …Patent is valid and was properly issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office under the Patent Laws of the United States”, and that “Indfrag and its agents … are enjoined from importing into the United States, marketing, advertising for sale or selling in the United States any Coleus forskohlii extract whose forskohlin content is above 3%….”
