The June 2009 issue of Patent World, published 10 times a year by Informa, is now out. Items of interest or concern to patent litigators include a piece by Mark Scarsi and Caitlin Hawks (Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy), "Rocket docket no more?", which discusses two recent decisions that have affected the flow of patent trials to the Eastern District of Texas, suggesting that clarification of transfer of venue principles will result in more disputes being heard elsewhere. Marjan Noor (Howrey) also reviews national decisions in Europe on the stay of actions pending the outcome of oppositions before the European Patent Office in the UK, Germany, France and the Netherlands.
