The Federal Circuit: Conflicting Decisions and Uncertainity in Patent Law

Wednesday, January 16, 2013 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


When it was created in 1982, the Federal Circuit was supposed to bring order to the chaos of conflicting appeals courts, and consistency to patent law. However, fundamental disagreements among the judges of the Federal Circuit have left a patchwork of conflicting decisions and uncertainty in the law.

Martin O'Donnell, recently retired as senior partner at Cesari & McKenna, LLP, will discuss some of the aspects of the varying views among Federal Circuit judges and how it is affecting patent practice and litigation today.
