Stephen Brauerman, head of Bayard’s litigation group, is quoted extensively in an article appearing in Law 360, entitled “Delaware Primed for IP Case Bump Despite Bench Vacancies,” regarding the implications of last week’s U.S. Supreme Court decision in TC Heartland LLC v. Kraft Foods Group Brands LLC for the Delaware District Court. Brauerman, who also heads the Delaware Chapter of the Federal Bar Association, appears regularly in intellectual property cases pending in the United States District Court for Delaware. The Court is likely to see an influx of intellectual property cases as a result of the decision, which limits where patent owners can file infringement cases. In the Law 360 article, he is quoted as stating “I don’t think there’s any question whether Delaware can handle the [additional caseload].” He added, “the district court has always been a hotbed for patent cases…. Delaware prides itself on being the venue to decide very complicated business disputes.”
