Rocket-Dockets Aren't Just For the Eastern District of Texas Anymore

Federal judges in the Northern and Southern Districts of Texas have announced that they will start looking into adopting districtwide patent litigation rules and procedures patterned after those adopted in the Eastern District. Last week (Dec. 12), judges in the Southern District's Houston division met and agreed to consider adopting districtwide rules and procedures for patent litigation. Northern District judges are planning to meet in Dallas in January to consider a timetable for adopting similarly proposed districtwide patent rules.
