After Teva: How Will Patent Litigation Change?
Thursday, February 5 at 2:00pm ET

The U.S. Supreme Court’s long-awaited opinion in Teva v. Sandoz is easy to summarize: When reviewing a district court’s resolution of a subsidiary factual matter in claim construction, the Federal Circuit must apply a “clear error” standard of review, and not the prior de novo standard.

But what will be this finding’s impact on patent litigation over time? Contradictory predictions flew in the days after the opinion’s release in January. Some litigators said district court judges will rely more on extrinsic evidence to insulate their decisions from being overturned; others said judges won’t waste their time, because relying on extrinsic evidence when the intrinsic evidence is clear will result in reversal. Some thought that more expert testimony in Markman proceedings will make costs rise; others say costs will diminish because the reversal rate on appeal will decline. The majority of justices dismissed worries about different jurisdictions construing the same claim term in different ways; two justices were apprehensive. Our panel of experts will untangle the predictions and give their own best analysis.
