  • Through at least August, 2012, all patent litigation cases filed in or transferred to the Northern District of Texas Dallas Division will be assigned to Judge Lynn, Judge Godbey or Judge Kinkeade. This change is the result of the Northern District of Texas’ implementation of the Patent Pilot Program, a ten-year program designed to enhance expertise in patent cases among U.S. district judges. See Pub. L. 111-349 (Jan. 4, 2011).
