This program is presented by the DBA IP Section’s Young Lawyers Committee and it will address the rules surrounding venue in patent cases after TC Heartland and In re Cray. Specifically, the program will address recent strategies and cases related to venue and transfers for convenience, as well as the Federal Circuit mandamus practice that has become increasingly popular as of late. The speakers will also briefly analyze some of the Federal Circuit’s recent mandamus decisions to provide a glimpse into how the world of venue is shifting at the moment.
