Good morning! No news in the Senate this week. We still don’t have a Manager’s Amendment, still haven’t had a markup, and don’t have any information on when either will be occurring. As we wrote last week, now is the time to let your Senators know that you want a strong patent reform bill!
Earlier this week, Matt explained why there were so many patent lawsuits filed on April 23, 2014, mostly by trolls, which was out of fear that heightened pleading standards would go into effect the next day.
