Post eBay: Permanent Injunction Requests in Patent Cases

December 11, 2007
This Master Class will examine the affects of the U.S. Supreme Court's eBay opinion on patent litigation. The class will provide statistics on district courts' decisions whether to grant or deny injunctions, and discuss some of the patterns revealed by the statistics. In addition to discussing the extent to which district courts have granted or denied injunctions in patent litigations, the class will discuss the extent to which courts have created new post-trial procedures and remedies in those cases in which injunctions have been denied, as well as recent Federal Circuit case law addressing the availability of some new procedures and remedies.
