Illumina (ILMN) wins its motion for dismissal in its patent litigation with Helicos BioSciences (HLCS), which was filed against the company in October 2010. The judge ruled the patent was invalid for inadequate written description. It was the last remaining one to be dismissed by the court, out of three separate patents originally asserted by Helicos in the lawsuit.
