“[Le Bron] is not coming in any form, shape or capacity … Ben’s not a shooter, and [Le Bron] dominates the ball way too.
He’s not coming to Philly for sure.” The NFL catches plenty of flak for when an idea doesn’t work (Thursday Night Football, color rush uniforms, their rules on what constitutes as a catch), so let’s give some credit where credit is due.
Patent local rules, on the other hand, can and do vary significantly from district to district because they govern procedural aspects of patent cases. Many patent local rules require a party to produce an exculpatory opinion shortly after the court’s claim construction order or forfeit the right to rely on it.
This is true even though many districts’ patent rules are patterned after those of the Northern District of California. Such a requirement may be especially important where contributory infringement or inducement is expected to play a prominent role in the case. Others key the production date to the close of fact discovery.
Former Sixers great and NBA on TNT analyst Charles Barkley pumped the brakes on that Monday, however, telling 97.5 The Fanatic that there is a zero percent chance Le Bron chooses Philly in July.
“Le Bron won’t fit with the Sixers because he’d take the ball out of Ben [Simmons’] hands,” Barkley said.
Patent rules supplement—not replace—the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and local civil rules. Another important requirement imposed in some districts is a limit on the number of terms allowed for construction, most commonly ten terms (see N.
Substantive patent law, at least in theory, is consistent throughout the country thanks largely to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Federal Circuit over patent appeals. One topic of interest where willful infringement or inducement is at issue concerns the disclosure of advice of counsel opinions.
All patent local rules require plaintiff patentees to identify the asserted claims and to serve claim charts mapping the claims against the accused product(s). Unsurprisingly, patent local rules for invalidity contentions roughly mirror their counterpart infringement contentions. Regarding the timing of invalidity disclosures, there is a wide variation among districts—contrast the Northern District of Illinois (two weeks after infringement contentions) with the Southern District of California (two months after infringement contentions). Amending Contentions Patent local rules deal with the amendment question in two ways.
Likewise, the patentee must identify whether the accused infringement is literal and/or under the doctrine of equivalents. § 112(f) (better known under its pre-AIA numbering as 35 U. With respect to invalidity contentions, the heart of all patent local rules is the requirement that the accused infringer disclose the prior art it plans to rely on for anticipation and obviousness purposes and to serve claim charts mapping the prior art against each element of the claims at issue. First, some districts provide for serving initial/preliminary contentions as well as a separate round of final contentions. sale of or offer to sell the claimed invention prior to the date of application for the patent in suit,” “[a]ll documents evidencing the conception, reduction to practice, design, and development of each claimed invention, [prior to the priority date],” and “[a] copy of the file history for each patent in suit.” E.
Patent local rules typically establish the timing and disclosure requirements for infringement and invalidity contentions, production of infringement/invalidity related documents, as well as procedures and timetables for Markman proceedings.
