10 Things to Know Before You Go to Trial in Waco

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

Description: Despite all of the recent press, the Western District of Texas is a relatively recent entrant into the world of high-volume patent litigation.  And through all that press, it is easy to forget that Judge Albright and Waco are seeing their first series of patent trials.  Don't be fooled--you Eastern District experience does not matter.  What do trial attorneys need to know? And what should in-house counsel be asking about as trial approaches?  And maybe the most important question of all, what should in-house counsel be thinking about earlier in their cases in order to get ready for trial if it does occur. For anyone overseeing a patent litigation in the Western District, this is a session that will help you ask the right questions.  Speakers: Bradley Coburn, Winston & StrawnAhtoosa Amini Dale, Winston & StrawnBarry Shelton, Winston & Strawn

26th Annual BCLT/BTLJ Symposium: The Emergent Right to Repair - Competition Issues

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

In years past, consumers didn’t think twice about taking a broken car or toaster to a local repair shop or even fixing it themselves. But with today’s software-enabled products, consumers can no longer take those options for granted. In response to legal and technological restrictions, a growing movement advocating a right to repair has emerged, despite pushback from some quarters. The right to repair is at the center of a key policy debate. The Biden Administration and a unanimous FTC recently voiced support for competition and consumer choice in repair markets. Legislation under consideration in dozens of states would facilitate consumer and third-party repair. And regulators around the world have begun to embrace the repair agenda. But manufacturers and device makers remain skeptical of an unfettered right to repair, citing concerns over intellectual property rights, reliability, security, and lost revenue. This symposium will consider the complex, overlapping set of policy questions at the center of the repair debate. How do restrictions on repair, or their elimination, affect competition? How might policymakers resolve potential tensions between the right to repair and the intellectual property rights of device makers? Would the consumer benefits of open repair markets outweigh their risks? And what legislative solutions or other policy interventions are best-suited to address these questions?

Last Week in Texas with Michael Smith | Episode 1

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

The Eastern District provides us with a side-by-side comparison of motions for amending contentions. Together, these decisions illustrate the important facts for both sides. Judge Gilstrap also provides us with a wonderful example of what it takes to win a 12(c) motion and strike down a patent under 101. Compare this outcome to Judge Albright's "uphill scrabble" to win a Rule 12 motion on 101. Finally, Judge Albright gives updated guidance on alternative service and about modifying his model protective orders. Speaker: Michael Smith, Scheef & Stone   Texas is home to over 40% of all patent litigation. And with that many on-going cases, important changes happen weekly.

Judge Gilstrap shows his work when calculating enhanced damages on remand. For anyone looking at enhanced damages and ongoing royalties, this case is illustrative.  Sounding somewhat ominous, Judge Gilstrap explains the limits of a FRAND determination and the boundaries the court will not cross. The requirement for Infringement contentions varies from judge to judge even when the rule is exactly the same. Judge Schroeder adds to our knowledge by providing important and specific guidance on the scope of infringement contentions. In the Western District, Judge Albright continues to refine his local rules and issue procedural rulings. From protective orders to confidentiality designations, these procedural opinions are invaluable for those practicing in his court. My favorite opinion this week revolves around his view of 30(b)(6) topics. The opinion includes a list of 30(b)(6) topics that I wouldn't advise using.  Speaker: Michael Smith, Scheef & Stone   Texas is home to over 40% of all patent litigation.

Last Week in Texas with Michael Smith | Episode 4

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

Description: Judge Albright continues to provide detailed guidance on the often maddening day-to-day tasks of patent litigation. This guidance can both streamline a case and reduce the costs of litigation—but only if attorneys follow it. For example, we get detailed guidance on the court's approach to court costs, discovery of unnamed products, protective order changes, and counting interrogatories. We even get an interesting case on establishing venue by pointing to employees working at home. And maybe the most illustrative cases this time come from a pair of cases discussing motions to stay—one from Waco and one from Austin. Is a motion for preliminary injunction going to be a prerequisite going forward? Speaker: Michael Smith, Scheef & Stone   Texas is home to over 40% of all patent litigation.

Last Week in Texas with Michael Smith | Episode 5

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

Once again, Michael Smith highlights some key learning points from the Texas courts, including: Same plaintiff, different judges, different outcomes--What lessons can we learn from the Sonrai cases and the different decisions in Waco and Austin?   A delicate balancing act between asking the otherside to create new documents and asking the other side to explain their financial documents.  Can we really find a rule of reasonableness? LinkedIn abuse--A sharp rebuke about venue gamesmanship and the misuse of LinkedIn profiles. A textbook case for striking portions of an expert opinion. Judge Gilstrap explains his views on discovery of negotiation agreements and litigation funding documents. Past or present--what are the venue impacts of a closed facility?

Last Week in Texas with Michael Smith | Episode 7

  • Author/Instructor:  BCLT

Trial prep and discovery fights continue in Waco, and there still is a lot to learn. For example, the court doesn't take kindly to a company claiming that it cannot identify its own suppliers. Another great lesson—the court will enhance damages for willful infringement but only over portions of the infringement period. And yet another great lesson—the Waco court continues to transfer big-name defendants when they make their case.   What of the Austin division? Austin judges may be receptive to stays, but they are showing a strong resemblance to other Texas judges when it comes to deferring to the jury. In this highly-instructive case, an Austin judge refuses to strike expert damages testimony, letting the jury make the ultimate decision. Finally, the lesson of the week comes from the Eastern District: don't be unreasonable. In denying a motion to compel, the court twice scolded the plaintiff for refusing to narrow, "even modestly," its discovery requests. This is a great case for understanding the limits on interrogatory breadth.

Description: Three global powers and three different approaches to the autonomous vehicle market. What does the future development of autonomous vehicles look like? Will the markets and regulatory schemes splinter--causing technology to develop independently? And what should technology companies be watching for in the near future. For this session, our instructors explain the current legal and likely future regulatory schemes for China, the EU, and the United States. For anyone guiding technology companies involved with autonomous vehicle technology, this session should not be missed.    Speakers: Denise Benz, Victor Ho, & Paul Kellery, Allen & Overy
