Law Seminars International (LSI) will be offering a one-hour telebriefing on the "New Third Circuit Ruling in the K-Dur 'Reverse Payments' Case: Practical Implications for Patent Litigation and FTC Enforcement" on September 20, 2012 from 1:00 - 2:00 pm (Eastern). Jeffrey W. Brennan of McDermott Will & Emery will moderate a panel including Seth C. Silber of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati PC and Thomas G. Krattenmaker of Krattenmaker Consulting. The panel will analyze the K-Dur decision, compare and contrast it to the three preceding appellate decisions that involved a markedly different analytical approach to the issue, assess the likelihood of Supreme Court review and the issues on which the Court is most likely to focus, and discuss the K-Dur decision's implications for client counseling and future FTC enforcement. Among the topics to be covered are:
The evolution of pay-for-delay case law culminating in the K-Dur decision;
• The K-Dur court's analytical approach and core holding;
• The fundamental principles that separate the Third Circuit from the Eleventh, Federal and Second Circuits on pay-for-delay analysis;
• Whether the Supreme Court will hear the case and, if so, how the Court is likely to approach and decide the issues; and
• How K-Dur changes the dynamic for counseling clients trying to settle patent infringement litigation.
A Q&A will follow the presentation and last for up to 30 minutes.
The registration fee is $125 per caller and $50 each additional person on the same line who desires continuing education credit. Those interested in registering for the telebriefing, can do so here.
