Jonathan Bowser was quoted in The Wall Street Journal‘s article “Supreme Court Limits Where Patent-Infringement Cases Can Be Filed.”
“Texas has a much more accelerated docket. Delaware takes its time a little bit more,” said Jon Bowser, an attorney with Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC. Delaware judges also have been more likely to postpone infringement cases in their court when there are concurrent proceedings pending at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, he added.
Jonathan was also quoted in Law360‘s article “Attorneys React to Supreme Court Patent Venue Ruling.”
“The court’s decision in TC Heartland will have a significant impact on where patent owners may bring infringement actions against domestic corporations. For most patent owners, venue choices will be limited to the accused corporation’s principal place of business or its state of incorporation. The Eastern District of Texas will likely see a dramatic reduction in its number of patent infringement cases. The decision is not unexpected considering the court’s recent track record in overturning the Federal Circuit and the narrower definition of venue in 28 U.S.C. Section 1400(b), which is a special-purpose venue statute for patent infringement cases.”
