LXer: Supreme Court Will Hear A Case That Could Finally Shut Down East Texas As The Patent Troll Mecca

Published at LXer:

We've been writing about how patent trolls have been flocking to East Texas for ten years now, and little has changed. In fact, as we noted last year, there's one judge in East Texas, Judge Rodney Gilstrap, who famously handled 20% of all patent cases filed in the country in 2014. One judge. And that's not all the patent cases that come into that court. The towns of Marshall, Texas, and Tyler, Texas, have built a giant industry out of being super friendly to patent trolls. And it's ridiculous. But there's a case that could put an end to it and the Supreme Court has thankfully agreed to hear it.
