Consequences: According to AbbVie, it is not necessary to prove subjective intent to restrict competition or bad faith, regardless of whether an objectively baseless Hatch-Waxman lawsuit is filed.

In addition, some prosecutors abused the grand jury process by creating false subpoena documents targeting witnesses and victims of crime. This practice has recently been discovered in the following jurisdictions: New Orleans and Gretna, Louisiana, and Nassau County, New York. This fraudulent practice is particularly problematic because it infringes the rights of unrepresented persons. Such a healthy approach creates an unpredictable legal framework that ruthlessly ignores the legal rights of individuals and undermines the integrity of the Court.
