The Lancing Blow to Patent Infringement Litigation in the ED Texas

On September 21, 2017, in In Re: Cray Inc, 2017 WL 4201535, the Federal Circuit (U.S. Appeals Court that has nationwide jurisdiction to hear appeals in patent cases) delivered the lancing blow to the Eastern District of Texas (ED Texas) being the go to venue for patent infringement litigation. ED Texas is renowned for being a money machine that puts out humongous jury verdicts in patent cases.

THE ARTICLE PROVIDES A COMPREHENSIVE TREATMENT OF THE LAW ON VENUE IN A PATENT INFRINGEMENT CASE. The article is a must read for every litigator, business person, academic and scholar involved in patent infringement litigation.
