On July 25, 2022, W.D.Tex. Chief Choose Garcia issued a novel order concerning task patent instances filed in Waco Texas federal courtroom. Previous to that order, all Waco instances had been assigned to Choose Albright. Many accused infringers complained that Albright was taking instances to trial to rapidly and after some political stress Choose Garcia issued this new order that going ahead any patent actions filed in Waco will probably be distributed randomly to one among twelve W.D.Tex. Judges.
Since that date, 234 patent instances have been filed in W.D.Tex. One shock from wanting on the judicial assignments — about 1/3 of those new instances have been assigned to Choose Albright. It seems that the courtroom could also be making an exception to the rule when new instances are intently associated to already pending instances, however I’ve not seen any public assertion on that entrance. Of the opposite 11 judges, all have acquired a minimum of one new case, with most having 9/11 patent instances to deal with. The brand new randomness seems to additionally create a delay in case task. About 25% of the instances haven’t but been assigned to any decide — most of those are instances filed in October.
