This article presents a patent litigation framework for other federal district courts to follow, using the example of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas after TC Heartland. This article also provides an overview of the TC Heartland U.S. Supreme Court case and the In Re Cray Federal Circuit opinion, as well as how those two cases have impacted patent litigation in various district courts across the country, most notably in the District of Delaware. All district courts should learn various lessons from the District Court for the Eastern District of Texas and should model their practices after its approach to handling patent cases going forward.
