The American Bar Association and BakerHostetler invite you to attend a continuing legal education seminar. Facilitated by Gary Levin and John Murphy, this roundtable will explore the evolution of nationwide venue in patent infringement suits.

Specific topics to be discussed include:

  • Historical review of patent venue decisions, focusing on VE Holding Corp.
  • The Federal Circuit’s recent decision in TC Heartland and potential for Supreme Court review.
  • Is there a justification for determining venue differently for patent actions than for other civil actions?
  • Should the recent concentration of patent cases in a few jurisdictions affect venue rules?
  • Proposed legislative reform to redefine venue for patent actions.
