Most recently, the Eastern District of Texas has seen an increase in the number of cases filed relating to patent infringement. This District (and notably Judge T John Ward in the Marshall Division and Judge Leonard Davis in the Marshall and Tyler Divisions) have experienced an increase in the number of patent cases filed and tried in this venue. By providing a set of local rules for patent cases and relatively fast trial settings, patent plaintiffs have flocked to this small venue. In 2003, there were 14 Patent Cases filed. In 2004, this number almost tripled to 59 Patent Cases filed.


By providing open discovery with firm deadlines along with local rules designed to fast-track patent cases, the Eastern District of Texas has taken a sizeable chunk of the patent litigation from other venues such as the Eastern District of Virginia.


In addition, due to the proximity to larger cities (such as Dallas and Houston) along with an aging jury pool interested in complex patent considerations, Marshall, Tyler, and Texarkana, Texas have proven themselves as sufficient venues for present and future patent litigation.
