We’ll eventually wean ourselves off of continuing coverage of the MV3-Roku trial, but until then we want to make sure you’re aware of a wide array of perspectives in the legal media at large:
- Sushila Chanana, Julia Kropp, and Ashleigh Nickerson of Farella Braun & Martel ponder the potential effects of last week’s defense verdict on the patent bar’s view of the Waco Division: Insights Into the First Patent Trial in Waco, Texas
- Law.com (subscription required) conducted an in-depth follow-up interview with Roku’s counsel Alexander Hadjis regarding his impressions of the trial experience before Judge Albright: No Sidebars, No Problem for Roku in First Patent Trial Before Judge Albright
- Michael Tomasulo of Winston & Strawn’s WacoWatch blog covered 3 Things To Know After Busy WDTX Patent Judge’s 1st Trial (subscription-only version available on Law360)
In other news:
- Not patent-specific, but speaking from personal experience, I can very much agree with the premise of Remote Depositions: The New Normal, from Edward M. Spiro and Christopher B. Harwood of Morvillo Abramowitz Grand Iason & Anello. Note that even though this analysis focuses on a particular decision from Magistrate Judge Aaron of the SDNY, Judge Albright is also very open to videoconference-based depositions—for at least as long as the COVID-19 pandemic creates travel obstacles (and possibly beyond?).
- One of these days we intend to get into a more in-depth discussion on this blog of the presently-evolving role of antitrust law in the area of litigation involving standard-essential patents. In the meantime, check out this analysis from Michelle M. Ovanesian of Proskauer Rose: Are Antitrust Claims Against Licensors of Standard Essential Patents Dead on Arrival?
- Over at Above the Law, Gaston Kroub of Kroub, Silbersher & Kolmykov continues to explore PTAB IPR institution decisions and discretionary denials under the NHK-Fintiv factors, including a case study from the Parus Holdings v. Apple litigation presently pending before Judge Albright: Taketh and Giveth
