Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr's Robert Gunther and Omar Khan write: Patent cases filed in the Southern District are slowly being concentrated among the judges who volunteered to participate in the Pilot Program, and those judges seem open to using many of the case management tools and procedural devices that are commonplace in the most active patent districts. Those developments, coupled with recent changes in the patent law governing venue and joinder, suggest that the S.D.N.Y. may see a rise in the number of filings as patentees find it a speedier and more predictable forum.
