Judge Stark Issues New Patent Scheduling Order and other Case Management Procedures

On Wednesday, June 18, Judge Leonard P. Stark published a new form scheduling order on the District of Delaware web site for non-ANDA patent cases, as well as a new form pre-trial order for patent cases, a new set of “Procedures for Managing Patent Cases,” and a “Case Management Checklist” for use in patent Rule 16 conferences. These changes are in response to feedback from the Patent Study Group (discussed here). Unless otherwise ordered, these Revised Procedures will govern all non-ANDA patent
cases filed on or after July 1, 2014 that are assigned to Judge Stark.
