May 2024 Marshall Patent Scheduling Conferences

Another crowd in town across the street in federal court this morning – for a docket and settings largely consistent with the outcomes in March. Regrettably, not as entertaining a bunch as when the Ringling Bros. circus came down my street on November 8, 1900. You can’t see the Hub store sign in the crowd, but the large rectangular roof lantern with side frames you see toward the rear of the building at far left back then is still here – today it’s the skylight over my office.

December Marshall Patent Status Conferences

Okay, this was technically not during yesterday’s scheduling conferences, but the courtroom was nearly as crowded.
