In the report, the analyst notes:

"Shares of CIGX jumped 18% Monday, extending a surge on Friday as the tobacco company announced it received two notices and letters from the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) confirming the validity of each of the claims involved in the reexamination of the '649 and '401 patents. These patents are central to a patent infringement case filed by CIGX against North Carolina-based tobacco giant RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company Inc. (RJR) in 2001 and 2002."

"CIGX currently awaits a ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals on its appeal of the June 2009 jury verdict in favor of RJR. Oral argument on the appeal was heard by a three-judge panel of that Court on January 11, 2011. The appeal requests that the jury verdict be reversed, the case remanded to U.S. District Court for a new trial, and that it be reassigned to a new judge."
