Pilot Program Set Up to Match Judges with IP Related Cases


Patent lawyers can now hope for a better result for their clients if a pilot project for patent cases is successful. In the pilot program, which will run for 10 years, a judge can refuse to preside over a patent related case within 30 days of being assigned to it. The case will then be reassigned to a colleague who has agreed to take on patent cases and has been given permission to do so by the chief judge. However, the cases will still continue to be assigned randomly during the first round. For a court to be eligible for this program, it should already be handling a high number of patent cases or be agreeable to adopt its procedural rules for patent related cases.
