Preliminary Relief in Patent Infringement Disputes is published by the American Bar Association (ABA) and addresses the issues that are most important in seeking preliminary injunctive relief in a patent case and provides a pertinent review of how such injunction requests have been treated by the Federal Circuit and district courts since the important eBay decision.
The book begins with an overview of how preliminary relief is addressed in patent and intellectual property cases. Topics include legal and business considerations in seeking preliminary relief, the types of preliminary relief, pre- and post-filing considerations, and the likelihood of success on the merits. Other factors, such as irreparable harm, balance of hardships, and public interest, are also addressed in this introductory chapter.

The balance of the book examines the Federal Circuit Court cases and 112 selected district court cases to show how preliminary injunction requests have been treated since the Supreme Court’s 2006 eBay decision. The book identifies the judges in the Federal Circuit and district court cases. Tables identifying the Federal Circuit and the district court cases in chronological order are also provided.
