In an unconventional move, an Eastern District of Texas federal judge allowed the jury to decide factual questions involving a check processing patent, which prompted the judge to declare the patent invalid. Bloomberg Law includes remarks from IP litigation partner Matt Rizzolo (Washington, D.C.) on the verdict.

Mr. Rizzolo explains that parties may be more willing to ask judges to skip pre-trial patent eligibility examinations and have juries weigh factual evidence and testimony.
