03.25.16 | R. Gregory Israelsen discusses Senate bill that could restrict where patent lawsuits can be filed in Law360

R. Gregory Israelsen discusses the potential impact of the “Venue Equity and Non-Uniformity Elimination Act” or VENUE Act, introduced in the Senate on March 17, in Law360.

Mr. Israelsen says the bill, which allows suits to be filed where the accused infringer has its principal place of business or is incorporated, or has a facility that gives rise to infringement, would limit the number of patent cases filed in the Eastern District of Texas.

However, he also says, if the bill allows suits to be filed where a defendant is incorporated, more suits may be instead filed in Delaware.
