Whicker: Rays win Game 2’s march of the relievers

The Dodgers and Rays played spin-the-reliever Wednesday night, the new gaming craze that suits some teams more than others. Tampa Bay’s more orderly pitching procession was superior to the Dodgers’ grab-bag approach. That, along with an awakened Tampa Bay offense, evened the World Series with a 6-4 Rays’ victory. Once upon a time, relief pitchers were used to lift the burden off the starters. Like so much else in baseball, that process has somersaulted. Tampa Bay pushed young Tyler Glasnow, from...

CardioNet v. InfoBionic: Patenting a Diagnostic Tool

by Dennis Crouch CardioNet, LLC v. InfoBionic, Inc. (Fed. Cir. 2020) I have been following this case for the past couple of years because it served as the template for our 8th Annual Patent Law Moot Court at Mizzou back in 2018 (Sponsored by McKool Smith). In the case, CardioNet sued InfoBionic for infringement (D.Mass.).  The district court quickly dismissed the case for failure to state a claim under R. 12(b)(6) – ruling that the claims of CardioNet’s US7941207 are improperly directed at paten...

Respect for Judgment: Challenging the Federal Circuit’s Unique Finality Rule

by Dennis Crouch My Civil Procedure class at Mizzou is now “Online Civil Procedure.”  The final topic in the course will be “respect for judgments.” A basic setup of our  legal system is to offer substantial justice — giving all parties due process including an opportunity to be heard and judged by an impartial tribunal.  Once that process is complete, the result is then seen as final and further challenges regarding the same issues or claims are precluded. In patent law, the sense of finality ...

Stop. Stop the presses.

At the end of an exceptional first week for our new program in News Innovation and Leadership at the Newmark J-school, the students — five managing editors, a VP, a CEO, and many directors among them — said they learned much from teachers and speakers, yes, but the greatest value likely came from each other, from the candid lessons they all shared. When I first proposed this program about four years ago, I suggested it should offer a smorgasbord of courses to be taken at will. Then ...

This week in Property: Efficient Infringement

by Dennis Crouch This semester at Mizzou, I am teaching two first year (1L) law school classes — Property and Civil Procedure. These classes are intended as fundamental foundation courses applicable in some way to all areas of law — even patent law.  I’m planning a series of posts titled “this week in property” and “this week in civil procedure” that will tie-in what we’re learning in class and relate it to patent law. The first case that my students read in Property is Jacque v. Steenberg Homes...

Shooting from the Hip and Curing a Premature Appeal

by Dennis Crouch When I first wrote about Amgen v. Amneal, I focused on the patent law issue regarding Markush groups in the patent claims.  Here, I want to circle back to the question appellate jurisdiction. I’ll be teaching the 2nd semester of Civil Procedure at Mizzou this spring and appellate jurisdiction is the the first topic up for grabs. Most patent infringement litigation reaches the Federal Circuit under the “final judgment rule” which creates appellate jurisdiction over cases “appeale...

Longtime Missouri commit announces flip to Arkansas by tossing Mizzou hat to ground, revealing Arkansas shirt

Arkansas flipped a recruit from one of its SEC East counterparts on Wednesday morning, and that recruit made his choice known in style. Dominique Johnson, a three-star running back from Crowley, Texas, had been verbally committed to Missouri since June. During a ceremony at his school, Johnson wore a Missouri hat — only to throw it to the ground, unzip his jacket and reveal an Arkansas shirt.

University’s Attempt At Showcasing Diversity Went Terribly, Horribly Wrong

The attempt by the University of Missouri’s athletic department to contribute to the NCAA’s inclusion week backfired so hard that it was forced to delete its tweet and apologize. According to the Riverfront Times’ report on Wednesday, the now-deleted tweet from Mizzou Athletics featured four student athletes with words that were intended to celebrate how they are “more than a student athlete.” The tweet was met with backlash when it became apparent that there were glaring differences in the me...
