Andrew Kopsidas, Fish principal, was quoted in Managing Intellectual Property article, “How the New ITC Rules Change Litigation Strategy” on June 7, 2018.

Andrew Kopsidas, principal at Fish & Richardson, explains the factors to be aware of that may cause a case to be split: “Too many patents, patents that are unrelated to each other, or too many claims. They need to make sure there’s consistency in their complaint if they want it kept all together.”

On the plus side, parties can use the divided-case option to their advantage. First, they would have at least double the hearing time to argue their side. Second, it could be used as a defence tactic. For example, a respondent could make a motion to sever if they can argue that their situation is different than the other respondents. Kopsidas comments: “I predict more motions to sever, and on more and more creative grounds.”
