Coalition Letter to Congress: Curtail Venue Shopping in Patent Lawsuits

Last year, ACI’s Alan Daily wrote two pieces on patent trolls and how these trolls were “shopping” courts to find forums with better legal outcomes.  Today, a broad coalition of think tanks has sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee in support of a bill that would curtail this “gamesmanship” and reduce abusive patent lawsuits.  The letter is available online.
