The Docket Report:
The Docket Report provides a daily bird’s eye view of every patent case in every U.S. district court, the ITC, and IPR and CBM proceedings in the PTAB. We comb through patent litigation docket sheets (usually between 800 and 900 proceedings per day) and carefully choose significant orders or pleadings which are then summarized and categorized by type of motion and legal issue. The end result is a streamlined summary of the most applicable events occurring in patent cases across the US.
Conduct nearly any search in the Docket Navigator database and save the search as an alert. We’ll run the search for you automatically every business day and send you an email with new results. With Docket Alerts you can effortlessly track new cases involving any company or patent, new filings in any case, decisions on evolving legal concepts (e.g., §101 unpatentability after Alice), or rulings on any type of motion (e.g., motions for attorney fees). Share, manage and remove alerts easily using our dedicated Docket Alert control panel.
Periodically, Docket Navigator publishes special reports analyzing trends and changes in the litigation landscape. Past reports address topics such as the success rates of invalidity challenges under 35 U.S.C. § 101 and the changing approach to stays pending post-grant proceedings in the PTO.
