Patent infringement court cases backing up in East Texas

by admin on December 30, 2010

The thing about a funnel is that there has to be a balance between the amount and speed that you pour the substance and the size of the opening.  The second you pour too much, too fast, is the

moment that everything starts to back up and you have a real mess on your hands. And the way things are flowing in the court houses of Marshall, Texarkana, and Tyler it looks like they have a real

mess on their hands.  What started out as a reputation of being a “rocket docket” court district has now become a vertical funnel of backed up patent infringement cases. Because of their “no bull”

courtroom rules and favorable decisions for plaintiffs the eastern court district of Texas began to see a greater amount of patent infringement cases being brought to their humble court houses. But

then the unbalance came. And that unbalance was brought on by the patent trolls. Throughout the United States this past decade patent trolls have been responsible for an overabundance of

unnecessary patent infringements cases taking place in our courthouses, especially those court districts that show favorable towards their objective. Going beyond the normal patent litigation case,

patent trolls literally exist to create lawsuits through which they make their income. The more cases they can get into the more money they can make. So as places like East Texas have created the

right environment for these patent trolls to take advantage of, an overflow has resulted.  Pouring in at an amount and frequency beyond the capacity of the court house, East Texas has seen that

“funnel” affect take place and it doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon.
