  • Property Rights, but only To the Extent Needed

    Property Rights, but only To the Extent Needed

     By Dennis Crouch

    In addition to its patent law jurisprudence, the Federal Circuit also handles appeals from the US Court of Federal Claims (CFC).   The CFC hears monetary claims against the U.S. Government – including breach of contract, takings, and unlicensed patent use under 28 U.S.C. Section 1498. The CFC also meets in the same Madison Place building as the Federal Circuit.

    The Federal Circuit’s new decision in Crow Creek Sioux Tribe v. United States, App. No. 2017-2340 (Fed. Cir. August 17, 2018), revolves around a water-rights takings claim against the U.S. Government.  The particular claim stems from two dams across the upper Missouri River that limit the Tribe’s ability to use and enjoy river water. The tribe sued in 2016. However, the case was dismissed for failure to state a claim.  The Federal Circuit has now affirmed that decision – holding that the tribal water rights are only a weak form of property.  In particular, the appellate held that the tribal property right in the water flow only extends to the amount of “to the extent needed to accomplish the purpose of the reservation.”  Quoting Winters v.

    The CRISPR Tug of War

    The University of California (“UC”) and The Broad Institute, Inc. (“Broad”) are among the leaders in the development of CRISPR technology.  Both UC and Broad filed patent applications for claims broadly drawn to CRISPR-Cas9 systems and methods of DNA editing.  These parties are currently engaged in litigation over patents concerning the potentially most lucrative application of CRISPR technology – the use of CRISPR-Cas9 in plant and animal (eukaryotic) cells.  The outcome of this litigation…

  • Merger of Dow and DuPont set to make huge waves in agriculture, materials and plastics sectors

    No one should get too used to seeing the name DowDuPont, however. Company executives plan on splitting DowDuPont into three separate companies, each with a specific industry focus. One will be a $19 billion company focused on the corporation’s combined properties in agricultural products, including fungicides, genetically modified seeds and herbicides. A $13 billion specialty products company will also be spun off to produce electronics materials, Kevlar, Tyvek, food additives and other…

  • "The Good Wife" on 13 December 2015 does KSR

    Buried in the periphery of “The Good Wife” episode of December 13, 2015 were oblique allusions to patent law, beginning with
    the episode title “KSR,” which in the episode relates to kidnap, sedate, and rape, rather than the Supreme Court case on obviousness.

    There is mention of the Dipple case, which seems to relate to patents, and there is mention of using “Form 18.”

    From celebritydirtylaundry :

    Ethan shows up at Diane’s office – they are supposed to be filing Dipple’s case today. Diane, Howard, an David are arguing with Cary. Cary says that it is their fault that the interns walked, because they treated them horribly. Diane hisses at Cary that this is his fault….he is the one that started a generational battle at the firm and he needs to fix it ASAP. She rushes in to her office to try and stall Ethan.

    The trick with the Dipple case turns on disciplinary rules:

    Cary shows back up to the office with the team of interns – he brings them in to the office and tells them all about the Dipple case and what they need to do for the brief, and then he tells them tht they are all fired. The interns are confused, what was the point of all of that? Cary laughs that now that they heard their side of the Dipple case – they can’t work for Canning, and they just screwed themselves out of a job.

    **Some past discussion of Form 18


    From Lexology, about changes effective 1 Dec 2015:

    Importantly for patent cases, the removal of the Appendix of Forms means that patent holders may no longer plead infringement with the bare-bones Form 18. In the 2007 decision in Bell Atlantic Corp. v. Twombly, the Supreme Court raised the pleading standard in civil cases to require sufficiently detailed facts to show that a claim for relief is plausible on its face. The Federal Circuit, however, continued to allow patent infringement claims to be pled through Form 18, which requires little more than the names of the parties and the asserted patents. See K-Tech Telecommunications v. Time Warner, 714 F.3d 1277 (Fed. Cir. 2013). With the removal of Form 18, courts may hold parties claiming patent infringement to the higher Twomblypleading standard, making it more difficult for patent holders to bring claims.

    **Relevant text from the KSR episode:

    Oh, Monica, there you are. Appendix to the Federal Rules. I flagged Form 18. I still need the conforming examples… Not until you get me on the phone with the egghead from Chicago Polytech. I tracked down Professor Kennedy’s secretary. She is waking him. Monica, is Form 18…? It’s a template for simplified pleading. We don’t need more than that.
