I posted yesterday about alterations in W.D.Tex. distribution of patent situations below the direct “Waco might be Heating Up Yet again this Wintertime.” I pointed out a new get from Choose Garcia that appeared to implicitly distribute Waco patent conditions back again to Judge Alan Albright. I also famous preliminary statistics for December 2022 showing the extensive greater part of Waco cases staying assigned to Choose Albright. The only exception so-considerably in December is a pair of similar scenarios assigned to Judge Yeakel.
This post pulls-back again a little bit. I dug into the data a little bit additional, with the subsequent results:
- 18 instances submitted in the Waco Division of W.D.Tex.
- 13 of these have been assigned to Choose Albright. BUT, all 13 are directly relevant to a circumstance either at present just before Judge Albright or a single that was dismissed in the previous yr.
- 2 of the scenarios have been assigned to Choose Yeakel and 3 of the conditions are unassigned. None of these surface associated to a case now before Choose Albright.
What all this usually means: (1) there is nonetheless some sum of distribution ongoing and (2) we don’t know what is actually happening from any official posture. The vital takeaway then is that we’ll have to have to wait around and see what actions new Chief Judge Moses usually takes.
In situation quantities total, For December 2022 WDTex continues to be the most preferred district but is carefully adopted by NDIll and NDCal.
One intriguing circumstance to enjoy is Apple Inc. v. AliveCor, Inc., Docket No. 5:22-cv-07608 (N.D. Cal. Dec 02, 2022). AliveCor appears to be successful its situation in the ITC demonstrating that the the Apple Enjoy is infringing. Now, Apple has sued AliveCor, alleging that the startup’s wearable coronary heart screens infringe Apple patents. [APPLE ALIVECOR complaint].
