Professor Mark Lemley Study: EDVA is Among Best, Speediest Districts for Patent Litigation

As Dennis Crouch reports on Patently-O, Professor Mark Lemley has unveiled a draft of his study, “Where to File Your Patent Case.”


According to Crouch, Professor Lemley examined 25 potential patent forums with respect to three criteria: “(1) likelihood of winning; (2) likelihood of getting to trial; and (3) speed of getting to trial.”


The Eastern District of Virginia, Crouch notes, was among the “best districts” with respect to two of the three criteria – speed and likelihood of getting to trial.
