Claim Construction After Teva: Six Months In
Wednesday, July 29 2:00pm – 3:00pm ET

How has the U.S. Supreme Court’s January ruling in Teva changed patent litigation at U.S. district courts? What are the latest lessons to be drawn from Federal Circuit decisions on appeals involving claim construction? It’s been six months since the Federal Circuit’s claim construction precedent was overturned by the Supreme Court, which required that a district court’s factual conclusions regarding extrinsic evidence be given deference on appeal. On our panel are two litigators who argued before the Federal Circuit in recently-decided cases involving claim construction, as well as a recently retired U.S. District Court Judge who has presided over more than 100 patent litigations.

In the early months after Teva, it seemed like “change without change”, as one academic article put it. In several cases, including the remand of Teva itself, the Federal Circuit continued to overturn many district courts’ claim constructions. But more recently, Cephalon v. Abraxis and VIS v. Samsung offer examples of how extrinsic evidence can play a more meaningful role post-Teva. In Lighting Ballast last month, on remand from the Supreme Court, the Federal Circuit panel flipped its original decision – affirming the district court’s claim construction supported by its now undisturbed factual findings.
