3 Things To Know After Busy WDTX Patent Judge's 1st Trial

Eugene Mar spoke to Law360 about the MV3 Partners LLC v. Roku Inc. case in the article, "3 Things To Know After Busy WDTX Patent Judge's 1st Trial."

In the article, Eugene said he's watching to see if there's a drop in new suits filed in Waco, or if Roku's victory makes defendants any less likely to aggressively seek to transfer cases to other districts.

"One of the best takeaways is that I think this will lead some companies and perhaps some attorneys to reconsider some of their underlying assumptions," he said. "The verdict shows that this Western District of Texas jury pool will give careful consideration to both sides of the case."
