Paul Cronin, a partner in Nutter’s Litigation and Intellectual Property Departments and a member of the firm’s Intellectual Property Litigation practice group, analyzed the oral arguments in the U.S. Supreme Court case TC Heartland v. Kraft. In the article, “Seismic shift on patent venue seen as tossup,” Paul said, “If TC Heartland wins, it won’t solve the problem of overcrowding in one jurisdiction or a handful of jurisdictions; it will just shift the overcrowded docket to other districts.” Furthermore, Paul noted that other than the docket overload, Delaware is a good place for patent litigation, given the forum’s predictability and judges who have written extensively on patent law. Paul also commented on how best to proceed in the current uncertain climate, stating, “Companies that are concerned about the law changing will want to grandfather their case to the extent doing so is possible.”
