Federal Circuit Judges to Participate in E.D. Texas Conference

The Federal Circuit has posted on its website an announcement about an upcoming conference sponsored by the Eastern District of Texas Bench and Bar (to be held in Dallas).  It looks like quite an interesting three day conference that should be particularly interesting to in-house patent counsel.  The announcement reads:

Chief Judge Rader, Circuit Judge Linn, Circuit Judge O’Malley, Circuit Judge Reyna and Circuit Mediator Amend to Participate in the 2011 Eastern District of Texas Bench Bar Conference

Chief Judge Randall Rader, Circuit Judge Richard Linn, Circuit Judge Kathleen O’Malley, Circuit Judge Jimmie Reyna and Circuit Mediator James Amend will participate in the 2011 Eastern District of Texas Bench and Bar Conference from September 25 to 27, 2011 in Las Colinas, Texas. Among the topics to be discussed are “Judicial Economy versus De Novo Review in Claim Construction”, “The Ethics of Advocacy”, “Emerging Management Techniques & Tradeoffs in Multiple Party Cases”, “Corporate Counsel: Views of ED Texas, Federal Circuit and Judicial Patent Reform”, and “Settlement Perspectives: Impediments to Resolution of IP & Other Complex Cases”.
