Intellectual property litigation counsel Matthew Rizzolo (Washington, D.C.) was quoted in a July 14 article in Reuters on U.S. District Judge Rodney Gilstrap’s interpretation of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in the TC Heartland patent venue case, which held that a company can only be sued for patent infringement in a district where it has a “regular and established” place of business.
Mr. Rizzolo explains that under Judge Gilstrap’s interpretation, many companies may still face patent suits in Eastern Texas even though the U.S. Supreme Court’s TC Heartland decision limited the venues in which patent cases can be filed.
