The UI will receive $9.5 million after settling a lawsuit over an alleged patent violation.

The university’s lawsuit against Abbott Laboratories was settled in November, according to official documents released Thursday.

The legal dispute with the Illinois-based corporation began in July 2009, when Abbott allegedly intentionally violated a patent on two medical tools that UI microbiology Professor Mark Stinski invented.

The corporation allegedly violated the patent when the tools were used in the Abbott-produced arthritis drug Humira.
