Bridget Smith, partner at Lowenstein & Weatherwax LLP, was quoted in an article published by Law360 on October 10, 2019, regarding a recent ruling in the Eastern District of Texas that has called into question the practice of not reading patents as a way for companies to shield themselves from claims of willful infringement

The article quoted Ms. Smith’s observations that a decision in the neighboring Western District of Texas concluded, only weeks earlier, that a corporate practice of not reading patents was insufficient to meet the test of willful blindness. The article may be accessed (subscription required) at this link.
