“The justices ruled 8-0 that patent suits can be filed only in courts located in the jurisdiction where the targeted company is incorporated.
The ruling is likely to lessen the steady flow of patent litigation filed in a single federal court district in rural East Texas because of its reputation for having rules and juries that favor plaintiffs bringing infringement suits.”
It’s cool that despite having a ‘split’ court, they decided *8 to 0* that suits should only be filed in the target jurisdiction. So it appears if someone wants to bring a patent suit, they need to come to where the targeted company is incorporated.
We asked a friendly lawyer what they thought of this decision, they say “This is good.”
