A question that arises in appellate law practice is whether a trial lawyer should also handle the appeal of a case. This is a complicated issue that deserves more than the simplistic answer it is usually given, and really depends on both the appellate experience of the attorney as well as the specific situation involved [...] [read post]

The clearly erroneous Wall Street Journal article in question was published on December 15, 2013, under the title Jimmy Carter's Costly Patent Mistake. The article, written by Gordon Crovitz, seems to take the position that patents stifle innovation, although Crovitz thesis is not explicitly stated. As ridiculous as it is to suggest that patents stifle innovation, this ill-defined Crovitz thesis isn't the major issue with the fiction published by the Wall Street Journal. Crovitz erroneously...

This ruling cannot stand, and the CAFC needs to step back from the brink. The CAFC has vastly overreached in Soverain v. Newegg, and it is imperative that the Supreme Court hear the case and that Soverain prevail. This attack on patent-holders and the adverse implications from the change proposed by Newegg are unprecedented, and would deal a devastating blow to any U.S. patent-holder, large or small. The proposed change would alter the law and effectively eviscerate the patent system. [read post]

The absolute truth known to everyone in the innovation community is that pioneering innovations become commonplace. What was revolutionary at the time the invention was made becomes taken from granted. In hindsight pioneering innovations look insignificant because they have become ubiquitous. The public, judges and critics find it difficult (assuming they try) to determine whether that which is commonplace today was really, truly obvious decades earlier as of the critical date. Even when an... … [read post]

Everyone who has objectively looked at the case knows that the Federal Circuit made a terrible mistake, but not that won't be corrected and a serial patent infringer that has made a business practice of ignoring patent rights gets to use the Soverain technology for free. And just when you think things couldn't get more strange, Newegg makes a bizarre comment with misogynistic undertones. "The witch is dead, hurray," said Lee Cheng, Newegg's Chief Legal Officer. It doesn't take a rocket... [read post]

Seth Waxman, of Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, a former Solicitor General and Soverain’s lead attorney, says, “Newegg is taking this case seriously and so should the Supreme Court. Newegg’s attempt to reargue the facts only confirms that this case should have gone to the jury.” Waxman says, “The judicial overreach that occurred in this case is not an isolated incident, but rather the acceleration of a trend in the Court of Appeals that presents a broader… [read post]

// Argues Chief Justice did not have power to fill vacant seat In an unprecedented move that jolted New Jersey's legal community, on December 10, 2010 New Jersey Supreme Court Justice Roberto A. Rivera-Soto announced that he will abstain from the New Jersey Supreme Court's decisions claiming that the Court's Chief Justice, the Honorable Stuart Rabner, did not have the constitutional power to appoint a temporary justice (appeals court Justice Edwin Stern) to temporarily fill a vacant seat on the… [read post]

Cabot Circuit Court Judge Philip Whiteaker Cabot Circuit Court Judge Philip Whiteaker announced last month that he will be a candidate for District 1, Position 2 of the Arkansas Court of Appeals.  That seat is currently held by Judge Raymond Abramson, who was appointed to that position last year by Governor Mike Bebee. Because Judge Abramson is serving by appointment, he is unable to run for the seat in the upcoming election.   Earlier this year, Abramson announced his candidacy for the… [read post]

See Arkansas Times: Judge Ray Abramson to Run for Arkansas Supreme Court.  While Judge Abramson has not made an official announcement,… [read post]

my iPhone can be a bell that you physically shake and it goes “ding” like a hotel desk bell; or it can be a carpenter’s level to help hang pictures, level a cabinet; or, it can be a compass that swings this way and that just like the one from a long ago scouting exercise; or it can be a flashlight. Clearly, one can patent a bell, level, or compass in whatever form it exists, it is a device. That much is not in dispute. But, what about the “code” that creates that… [read post]

Gene Quinn, of IPWatchdog and Practice Center Contributor, sent in this article discussing why he believes the United States Supreme Court's decision to accept cert. in Kappos v. Hyatt was undeniably a bad decision. By accepting cert. in Kappos v. Hyatt the United States Supreme Court has clearly and undeniably jumped the shark in terms of patents. This case, which raises issues of such little importance to the greater scheme of patent law, is hardly appropriate for Supreme Court consideration. The… [read post]

My 11th grade English teacher* sent me a Facebook message a couple of weeks ago asking for assistance in locating the records and briefs from Brown v. Board of Education. I replied with a list of resources, including exhibits at the Library of Congress and the National Archives. In answering his question, I realized that it might be helpful if I highlighted one of the Law Library's own resource guides. The Law Library's website has a very helpful page on finding U.S. Supreme Court Records and… [read post]

Three Supreme Court Justices are up for retention in November: Barbara Pariente, Fred Lewis and Peggy Quince. The GOP has announced a plan to unseat these three Supreme Court Justices in order to gain control of the Florida Supreme Court. It is clear that the intention of extremist political groups, such as Restore Justice 2012, is to slander the superior reputations of these Justices, thus paving the way for Republican Governor Rick Scott to replace them. Voters should educate themselves about… [read post]
