McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff LLP partner Bradley Hulbert authored an article entitled, “The rise and fall of tech patent disputes in Texas: TC Heartland’s ‘playing-field leveler’ for tech” that appears in the March 14, 2018 Westlaw Journal IP. Last year, 37% of patent cases were filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, and most of the defendants in those cases were high-tech firms. Reports by the research firm, Lex Machina, confirm that, in contrast, less than 10% were filed in Delaware, where more than half of U.S. publicly-traded companies are incorporated. view the article
