The case, <em>Board of Trustees of the Leland Stanford Junior University v</em>. <em>Roche Molecular Systems Inc</em>., will determine, in the words of the Supreme Court "Whether an inventor who is employed by a contractor that elects to retain rights in an invention may defeat the contractor’s right to retain title under the Bayh-Dole Act by contractually assigning his putative rights in the invention to a third party." In the case, Stanford is seeking to overturn a decision by the Federal Circuit that Stanford had no standing to bring a patent infringement lawsuit because a Stanford researcher, Mark Holodniy, had already assigned his rights in the patents-in-suit to Cetus (which has since been acquired by Roche Molecular Systems Inc.) prior to conception of the invention.

While patent litigation was once rare in these industries, today such litigation is common. Many of the cases are brought by so-called nonpracticing entities or "NPEs" that do not use the patents themselves.</p> <p>Rather, the NPEs sue to collect royalties for the alleged use of the patents. Very often, the patents themselves are called “business method patents.” These are patents that typically claim the use of a computer system to automate some aspect of a business operation.</p> Mon,

recently secured a significant victory for Medtronic Inc. and its subsidiary Warsaw Orthopedic in a patent infringement trial against rival NuVasive Inc.</p> <p>On Tuesday, September 20, a San Diego federal district court jury awarded $101.2 million in damages to Warsaw, after finding that NuVasive infringed three Warsaw patents covering spinal implants used in back surgery. The verdict is the fourth-largest jury award in 2011 for a patent infringement case.</p> <p>This result comes after nearly three years of litigation between the two companies. Medtronic and Warsaw sued NuVasive in October 2008 for allegedly infringing nine Warsaw patents related to surgical implants and processes for spinal surgery. NuVasive countered with claims that Medtronic and Warsaw infringed three of its own patents. At issue during the trial were only four of the patents, three asserted by Warsaw and one by NuVasive.</p> <p>Medtronic is the world’s largest medical technology company. The spinal and biologics unit is its second-largest business. NuVasive is a medical device company focused on products for the surgical treatment of spine disorders. <br />The Dewey & LeBoeuf team was led by Jeff Schwartz, who was supported by Jae Lee and Cecilia Marsh. Dewey was co-counsel on this litigation with attorneys from Kirkland & Ellis.</p> Wed, 28 Sep 2011 13:47:16 GMT Technology Law Update Newsletter Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/Publications/Newsletters/TechnologyLawUpdateNewsletter/20111031_TechnologyLawUpdateNewsletter <p>In this issue:</p> <ul> <li>Technology Headlines in One Minute</li> <li>Case of the Month</li> <li>Recent Developments</li> </ul> Tue, 01 Nov 2011 09:30:13 GMT Tahmidur Remura Dewey LeBoeuf Represents MetLife in Caribbean Stock and Asset Sale to Pan-American Life Insurance Group Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Firm/MediaCenter/PressReleases/2011/11/DLRepresentsMetLife (November 11, 2011) – The firm represented long-time client MetLife in its agreement to sell select businesses and assets in the Latin American and Caribbean regions to Pan-American Life Insurance Group (PALIG).
